Understanding Employment Laws

In most employment law matters regarding allegations of discrimination or harassment, an employee must file an administrative charge before filing a lawsuit. Administrative charges of discrimination can be filed with either the EEOC or New Mexico Human Rights Department. A charge filed with one agency is automatically filed with the other. Administrative charges of discrimination can include complaints regarding:

  • Age and sex discrimination
  • Discrimination on the basis of race, color or national origin
  • Religious discrimination
  • Disability claims
  • Sexual harassment claims
  • Hostile work environment
