Protection When You’ve Been Treated Differently at Work: Harassment in the Workplace
Under a number of federal laws, as well as the New Mexico Human Rights Act, discrimination is the workplace based on certain personal characteristics is against the law. That doesn’t mean, though, that it doesn’t happen. When you are denied a promotion or benefit, demoted or given an undesirable work assignment because of your gender, race, religious affiliation or other immutable trait, you have the right to file legal action to put an end to it, and to recover damages for any losses you have incurred.

Aggressive Advocacy for Victims of Workplace Discrimination
Under state and federal laws, workers are protected from discrimination based on what are referred to as “suspect classifications.” Specific federal statutes, such as the Age Discrimination in Employment (ADEA), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act (USERRA) and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, all provide protection based on certain personal characteristics. Under the New Mexico Human Rights Act, an employer may not discriminate against a worker based on race, color, national origin, religion, ancestry, gender, age, physical or mental handicap, medical condition, spousal affiliation, sexual orientation or gender identity.
