Employment Dispute Resolution Plan

The United States District Court, District of New Mexico is firmly committed to a policy that prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, sex (including sexual harassment), religion, national origin, disability or age.  In order to provide equal employment opportunities to all employees, employment considerations will be based on merit, qualifications, and abilities. 

The Court has adopted the Employment Dispute Resolution Plan of the United States District Court for the District of New Mexico (EDR Plan), which allows employees and applicants to seek redress for wrongful discrimination and harassment in the work place.  The EDR Plan also includes the Equal Employment Opportunity Plan for the District of New Mexico.

Incidents of perceived discrimination in violation of the EDR Plan may be confidentially reported by Court employees or applicants to one of the Court’s EDR Coordinators listed below who will protect the confidentiality of allegations and claims filed under the EDR Plan to the extent possible.  Alternatively, employees may contact the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals Lead EDR Coordinator (Christine “Chris” Markman, 303-335-2870). If you have a question, please feel free to contact an EDR Coordinator today.
