U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person's race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. It is also illegal to discriminate against a person because the person complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit.

Most employers with at least 15 employees are covered by EEOC laws (20 employees in age discrimination cases). Most labor unions and employment agencies are also covered.

The laws apply to all types of work situations, including hiring, firing, promotions, harassment, training, wages, and benefits.

New Mexico Online Colleges: Guide to School & State Data

New Mexico is known for its wild beauty and has long been an attraction to intellectuals, artists, and researchers alike. This state, known as the Land of Enchantment, has brought the world both criminals like Billy the Kid and Nobel Peace Prize winners like Ralph Bunche. It is also the home of some affordable quality universities. More than 100 online degrees are offered to students in New Mexico.

Two schools worth mentioning are the University of New Mexico and Eastern New Mexico University. The University of New Mexico hosts the Health Sciences Center, New Mexico’s largest integrated health care treatment, research, and education organization. U.S. News and World Report ranks the UNM School of Medicine 40th in primary care and 83rd in research. Eastern New Mexico University also shares some notoriety with UNM. The Business Journals rated ENMU four stars for cost, and four stars for diversity on a five-star ratings system.

Online education in New Mexico is well supported. New Mexico was the first state in the nation to create a statewide eLearning system for its entire constituency, including state agencies. This is known as Innovative Digital Education and Leanering in New Mexico, an initiative that opens statewide enrollment and allows schools to share eLearning initiatives. In addition to IDEL, New Mexico has been a member of the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education since 1952. In recent years, New Mexico has participated in WICHE initiatives related to distance education.
