Kennedy, Hernandez & Associates has worked diligently throughout the state of New Mexico to find justice for victims of employment discrimination.
Employment discrimination can happen during the hiring process, when employers or human resources departments engage in discriminatory practices to refuse to hire members of a protected class specifically because of their membership in that class. Employers or human resources departments may also engage in discrimination by refusing to promote someone based on their race, religion, gender, or membership in another protected group. Day-to-day employment discrimination can also take place in the form of wage discrimination, sexual harassment, and other forms of unjust or prejudicial treatment, including creating a hostile work environment.
Employers in New Mexico are not allowed to discriminate against employees for any of the following reasons:
- Religious affiliation
- National origin
- Physical or mental disability
- Sexual orientation or gender identity
Anyone who has suffered discrimination in hiring, firing, or employment may be owed compensation for lost wages, losses to reputation, or unemployment time.
The attorneys at Kennedy, Hernandez & Associates can help determine the best course of action to find compensation for these losses. The team understands the distress that comes with employment discrimination, and the attorneys approach each case with professionalism and understanding.
