Doing Business in Mexico: Critical Labor Law Updates for U.S.-based Employers - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn the latest compliance updates to ensure that you’re not violating Mexican employment laws when doing business south of the border.

Newly elected Mexican president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador’s administration is focused on many employment reforms that are likely to change how we do business with Mexico. But, what will that mean to you and your labor force—and what should you do right now to ensure compliance?

Many U.S. employers have cut labor costs or diversified their companies by setting up operations in Mexico. However, doing business there isn’t simple. Mexico has an employee-friendly labor law, and it doesn’t have “at will” employment, which means labor unions generally retain a firm grasp on workplace operations. And, Mexico’s employment laws differ greatly from those in the United States, including major differences concerning disability and overtime compensation.

Mexican labor law is also evolving. And, with the Obrador’s administration focused on the “2018-2024 Nation Project,” a series of proposals aimed at promoting Mexico’s development from a social, economic, and social standpoint, now is the time to figure out how imminent changes to the Mexican Federal Labor Law will affect employers doing business there.

Use this on-demand webinar that will provide recommendations on how to structure your employment plans in the nimblest ways, so you’re prepared to ride the waves of change that are likely to come. You’ll also learn the major legal do’s and don’ts of hiring, supervising, and terminating employees in Mexico.

Plus, you’ll learn:

  • How Mexico’s complex set of employment laws applies to U.S. employers
  • Hiring fundamentals—and important language you must have in your employment agreements—to ensure compliance with Mexican employment law
  • The latest changes in national politics in Mexico, and what the new administration could mean for labor law

  • Strategies for handling Mexico’s extremely employee-friendly rules for benefits, covering everything from medical coverage to days off
