Healthy Workplaces Act Takes Effect July 1 – Get in the know!


New Mexico Paid Sick Leave (Healthy Workplaces Act) of 2021 is a law requiring all private employers in New Mexico to allow employees to accrue and use a benefit called "earned sick leave."

Your employees are family and the very lifeblood of your business. We know SFAHBA members already treat their team members with the utmost respect, making sure their health and happiness translate to success for the entire business. That being said, the Healthy Workplaces Act, effective July 1st, mandates new rules and tracking of your employee’s leave.

Tune in for these upcoming Webinars or scroll down and click to watch a rebroadcast of the DWS webinar and ensure your business will be in compliance with the new law on July 1st.

The Healthy Workplaces Act (HWA) takes effect in New Mexico on July 1, 2022. Make sure business ready? Join us for an informational webinar that will introduce the HWA, discuss what your business should do now to prepare, and provide ample opportunity to ask questions from Department of Workforce Solutions (NMDWS) Labor Relations Division subject matter experts. Employers will leave the session with a better understanding of the law, be prepared to incorporate the requirements into their business practices, and know where to find additional HWA resources from NMDWS. Each webinar will take place on Zoom, available dates and times are listed above.
