  • Discrimination in violation of the New Mexico Human Rights Act or various federal anti-discrimination statutes, such as the ADEA, the ADA and the Civil Rights Act
  • Retaliation for exercising your legal rights, including filing a valid workers’ compensation claim, reporting wrongful conduct by your employer or testifying in a proceeding involving your employer
