New Mexico Background Checks Laws

Ban the Box Law in New Mexico

New Mexico law requires public and private employers to wait until a job applicant has been selected for an interview before conducting a criminal record check. This law offers the vast majority of individuals with a non-violent criminal record a second chance at an opportunity for employment to better their lives. Existing laws will continue to protect vulnerable adults and children from people with violent or sexual criminal histories. Additionally, employers may exclude applicants if a crime is relevant to the position’s job duties.

New Mexico "At-Will" Law

In New Mexico, employees are presumed to be “at will.” At-will employees may be terminated for any reason, so long as it’s not illegal. Similarly, an employee is free to leave his or her job at any time for any reason. 

There are numerous illegal reasons for termination. Typically such reasons fall into one of two large categories: illegal discrimination or illegal termination in violation of a public policy. Generally, employees who work under an employment contract can only be terminated for reasons specified in the contract.

Use Of Social Media In New Mexico Pre-Employment Screening

New Mexico law prohibits employers from demanding employees or applicants to reveal their usernames or passwords linked to social networking sites.
