Mexico Employment Updates for 2020: New Union-Related Compliance Issues, COVID-19 Concerns, & Other Pitfalls - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to comply with Mexico’s employment law and avoid legal risks concerning employees working there.

Mexico has complex and highly localized employment laws, which can trip up foreign organizations doing business there. It’s not enough to have a handle on U.S. employment laws if you have workers in Mexico, and organizations need specific guidance on how to legally manage their Mexico-based workforce without sparking legal risks.

One big concern is a new law that makes it so that a union only needs 30 percent of employee support to be deemed the workforce’s exclusive bargaining representative. This law also created a new agency—the Federal Center of Conciliation and Labor Registry (FCCLR)—to oversee union elections and contract ratifications. And, collective bargaining agreements (CBAs) will need to be ratified before the FCCLR over the next four years. What are the other practical impacts of this new law and other Mexico-related labor and employment updates? 

Also, right now employees based in Mexico who travel for work may need to deal with immigration and travel-related issues as the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic continues.

Use this on-demand webinar to find out those issues and more. Bill Wright, an international labor and employment attorney with Fisher Phillips, will explain how to manage labor and employment compliance risks when you employ workers in Mexico.

And, after attending this webinar, you’ll be able to: 

Recognize the most costly mistakes that may result from non-compliance with Mexico’s employment law

  • Comply with Mexico’s new law covering unions and avoid compliance pitfalls that could result now to that the FCCLR is in place
  • Manage Mexico-based and foreign nationals workers’ immigration and travel-related concerns stemming from the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic
  • Draft employment agreements in compliance with Mexican employment law 
  • Ensure that employer rules and policies stated in the employee handbook don't run afoul to Mexico’s employment law
  • Avoid legal tripwires to concerning compensation related to work time, overtime, and paid time off, and other potentially thorny issues
