New Mexico Labor Law Poster Update
All businesses within the State of New Mexico must display the new Minimum Wage and EEOC Know Your Rights: Workplace Discrimination is Illegal posters along with other state-mandated posting requirements where it is sufficiently accessible and viewable to all employees. This change has been reflected in our New Mexico & Federal Labor Law Poster and does require an immediate mandatory update. Failure to meet compliance requirements and display the updated poster could result in fines.
