New Mexico employers strive to provide their employees with the best benefits they can afford, while maintaining viable businesses and job opportunities. Layoffs, furloughs, and workforce reductions are typically last resorts.
As federal and state laws provide workers with many safeguards and benefits related to their health, safety, civil rights, minimum wage, overtime pay, family and medical leave, disability, and other interests, employers should not be exposed to unnecessary, burdensome compliance obligations exposing them to undue costs or penalties.
ACI supports workplace, employment, tax, and other laws that enable employers to retain high-performing employees, add jobs and offer benefits, while assuring business viability and competitiveness in state, regional, national, and international markets.
