Mexico Labor Law: Best Practices And Key Rules For Operating In Mexico
|Date / Time:
Many U.S. employers have cut labor costs or diversified their companies by moving some of their business operations to Mexico. But doing business there isn’t as simple as it sounds. Mexico is not a litigious country, but it is a pro-labor country that has no “at will” employment. Some labor unions retain a firm grasp on workplace operations.
Mexico’s employment laws also differ greatly from those of the United States in many areas, including disability claims and overtime hours.
In 2016 Mexico’s involvement with the Trans-Pacific Partnership came into focus. The changes have placed companies doing business in Mexico on a steep learning curve as they try to adapt and comply, while trying to avoid (or minimize) fines and penalties as well as possible criminal sanctions.
If you are thinking of expanding into Mexico and/or already have employees in Mexico, it’s essential to get to know the major legal do’s and don’ts of hiring, supervising, and terminating employees there.
Don’t miss webinar when presenter Francisco Peña, Esq., a skilled employment attorney with Mexico-based Cacheaux Cavazos & Newton, will teach you how Mexico’s complex set of employment laws applies to U.S. employers.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
