Information about discrimination in Albuquerque.

What is "Unlawful Discrimination?"

Unlawful discrimination is when someone is treated differently by an employer, housing provider, or public accommodation because they are a member of a protected class. The term "discrimination" shall mean any difference in treatment, terms, conditions, or practices based on race, color, age*, religion, sex, national origin or ancestry, or physical disability.

How do I know if I am being discriminated against?

You may have been discriminated against, if:

  1. You are treated differently from others in a similar situation because of your race, color, age*, religion, sex, national origin or ancestry, or physical disability; and
  2. You are harmed by the treatment

Your issue can be resolved through conciliation to include compensation for any actual losses incurred because of the discrimination.

*Not applicable in housing or public accommodations.
