Mexico Labor Law: Best Practices And Key Rules For Operating In Mexico

About This Course:
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.
