    The Human Rights Act was enacted in 1969 to ensure that all New Mexicans are protected from discrimination in employment, housing, credit and public accommodation. You can file a complaint of discrimination through the Human Rights Act under race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, age, physical or mental handicap, serious medical condition or, if your employer has fifty or more employees, spousal affiliation or if the employer has fifteen or more employees, to discriminate against an employee based upon the employee’s sexual orientation or gender identity. Under the work sharing agreement with EEOC, the division may also investigate complaints of discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion and sex under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964; age under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) of 1967; and disability under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. Under the work sharing agreement between the Human Rights Division (HRD) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), a complaint filed with the Human Rights Division will be dual-filed with the EEOC, provided it meets the EEOC's jurisdictional requirements. Also a complaint filed with the EEOC that meets the Human Rights Division's jurisdictional requirements will be dual-filed with HRD. It is not necessary to contact both offices.
