  • New Mexico currently does not require state family and medical leave for employees of private sector employers. See Family and Medical Leave.
  • New Mexico recognizes same-sex marriages performed in other states even though such marriages are not performed currently within New Mexico thus entitling parties to a same-sex marriage performed out-of-state to leave under the FMLA. See Same-Sex Marriage - Windsor's Impact on the FMLA.
