Discrimination

Federal and state anti-discrimination laws prohibit discrimination based on: race, color, national origin, religion, sex (including pregnancy), age (if 40 or over), and physical and mental disability. State law also prohibits discrimination based on ancestry, serious medical condition, spousal affiliation, sexual orientation, and gender identity, as well as discrimination in employment, public accommodation, housing, and in application for consumer credit.

Filing a Charge

If you feel you have been discriminated against based on the any of the protected classes listed above, the first step is to complete the intake form below. We will then contact you to schedule a call with an investigator. The investigator will help you file a formal charge, if appropriate. Note that your formal charge must be filed within 300 days of the most recent act of alleged discrimination.

If you are represented by an attorney, you do not need to submit an intake form. Instead, your attorney should submit a formal charge of discrimination on your behalf—an EEOC Form 5 if you want your claims dual-filed, or a Human Rights Bureau Charge if you are only filing under the New Mexico Human Rights Act. Your attorney can contact us to send them a blank charge form.

If you have any questions, please contact the Human Rights Bureau.
