Written for New Mexico employers, this book is a valuable tool for anyone wanting to know about New Mexico–specific employment laws. It covers everything from worker classification to at-will employment, from employment contracts to employment-law torts. Learn about the New Mexico Human Rights Act, New Mexico Wage and Hour and Child Labor laws. Find information on workers’ compensation, unemployment compensation, and the New Mexico Occupational Health and Safety Act. Read about laws that may exist in other states, but not in New Mexico; for example, in most situations, New Mexico law does not require mandatory meal or break periods. Review sections on drug and alcohol testing, medical insurance, employee records, personnel files, and garnishment of wages.
