Protecting the Rights of Victims of Age Discrimination in Employment
Workplace Discrimination Attorneys in New Mexico
In New Mexico, employers may not discriminate against certain employees or job applicants because of age, pursuant to both state and federal law. Under the provisions of the federal Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), employees 40 and over may not be subjected to age-based discrimination. While the New Mexico Human Rights Act does not identify an age barrier, the courts in New Mexico have consistently held that law applies to persons aged 40 and over.
If you have been denied employment, lost a job, or been subjected to any disparate treatment in New Mexico because you were 40 or over, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your legal rights. Buchanan Law can help.
At Buchanan Law, we bring more than 20 years of employment law experience to workers across the state of New Mexico. We maintain an office in Albuquerque, but we can meet with you in person throughout the state. Because of the many discrimination claims we’ve handled in the Land of Enchantment, we have an extensive knowledge and understanding of the laws, process and courts in New Mexico, as well as how the judges here try discrimination claims. Deena Buchanan has considerable experience as a trial attorney, serving as trial counsel on many complex and high-stakes matters. She’s known and respected by clients, colleagues and judges for her ability to remain cool, calm and collected under pressure.
