Mexico Labor Law Update for U.S. Employers: The Latest Compliance Tripwires to Avoid -

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to avoid labor and employment compliance tripwires when doing business in Mexico.

Many U.S. employers have cut labor costs or diversified their companies by setting up operations in Mexico. But, doing business there isn’t as simple as it sounds. Mexico’s employment differs greatly from that of the United States across a broad spectrum, with major differences in areas such as disability claims to overtime hours.

Also, Mexico has an employee friendly labor law, and it doesn’t have “at will” employment. As a result, labor unions, in some areas, retain a firm grasp on workplace operations.

And, several changes to the Mexican Federal Labor Law are imminent. This means it’s highly likely that changes in how we do business with Mexico are on the way. But, what will that mean to you and your labor force—and what you need to do to remain competent and in compliance?

Right now, the big question remains: Will the imminent changes to the Mexican Federal Labor Law provide employers with a friendlier labor environment?

With the president’s focus on changes in the U.S. relationship with Mexico, both on immigration and trade, it’s vital that any companies currently doing business or planning to expand to Mexico get up to speed on what is required now and on how the law may change in the near future.

Use this all-new on-demand webinar that will explain the major legal do’s and don’ts of hiring, supervising, and terminating employees in Mexico.
