Wage assignments.To be valid, an assignment of wages must be acknowledged by the party making the assignment in the presence of a notary public or other officer authorized by law to take acknowledgments. Such assignments must be recorded in the office of the county clerk of the county in which the wages are to be paid. A copy of the assignment must be served on the employer required to make payment (NM Stat. Sec. 14-13-11).
Wage assignment may not exceed 25 percent of an assignor's disposable earnings for any pay period. “Disposable earnings” refers to that part of an assignor's wages that remain after all other lawful deductions are withheld.
Agricultural employees.Employers supplying feed, utilities, supplies, or housing to an employee engaged in agriculture may deduct the reasonable value of such furnished items from any wages due such employee (NM Stat. Sec. 50-4-22(A)).
