Employment and Human Relations Law

Our firm has extensive experience handling employment-related cases and personnel matters involving both private and public sector employment. We can help you draft employment agreements and employee handbooks and policies, and we handle all types of employment-related litigation and administrative claims before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the New Mexico Human Rights Division, and the federal and state Departments of Labor.

The firm routinely handles litigation alleging discrimination and wrongful termination under both state and federal law, including allegations of sexual harassment and discrimination, age, race, and disability discrimination, and related claims, such as retaliation. We have experience defending Title VII discrimination actions, Americans with Disability Act claims, and age discrimination in employment claims, at both the administrative and court level. We also handle contract-based claims concerning alleged breach of employment contracts and breach of covenant not-to-compete brought by former employees.

Our private clients include financial institutions, restaurants, health care providers, insurance companies, non-profit corporations, real estate companies, automobile dealerships, and government contractors.
