To file a claim, download the form (under "Wage Claim Forms") or ask for a copy of the form at any NMDWS office. Once you have completed the form, submit it by: emailing it to wage.claimssubmiss@state.nm.us; delivering it in-person; or mailing or faxing it to a Wage and Hour office (contact information below).

If you are unable to complete a wage claim form, please contact one of the Wage and Hour offices for assistance.

A claim should include any information regarding hours worked and rate of pay promised to you. Incomplete information will delay the processing of the claim.

Please note: If you are under 18 years of age, a parent or legal guardian must also sign the wage claim documentation.


No deduction can be made except appropriate state, federal, and social security taxes without a written authorization from the employee or a court order. In all cases, the employee must receive the minimum wage.

The New Mexico minimum wage is $7.50 per hour. The federal minimum wage is $7.25 per hour. Certain cities have established their own minimum wage requirements. For more information, contact one of our offices.
