Sexual Harassment Law in New Mexico
The Human Rights Division of the New Mexico Department of Labor defines sexual harassment as “any unwanted and/or repeated physical or verbal act that is sexual, including sexual advances, sexual conduct, verbal or nonverbal sexual suggestions, sexual ridicule or sexual innuendos…” at work. Sexual harassment breaks down into two types: quid pro quo and hostile work environment.
Quid Pro Quo – This harasser demands sexual favors in exchange for a promotion, a raise or keeping a job. It requires payment of sexual conduct in exchange for workplace related rewards.
Hostile Work Environment – In this situation, a hostile work environment is one where a person finds difficulty performing their job due to unwanted words or actions of a sexual nature by another person.
Repeated innuendos, advances, conduct or ridicule of a sexual nature, which are unwanted and do not stop, that negatively impact job performance might only cease with a sexual harassment case.
