Employment in Mexico

Employers dealing with operations in Mexico should be aware that labor relations are highly
regulated by the country authorities with the Mexican employees generally having greater rights than their American counterparts.

Mexican Federal Labour Law
FLL is the most important employment legislation in Mexico. It defines employment relationship as the rendering of a subordinated personal service by one person to another, in
exchange for a salary. The main element of any labor relationship is subordination, which the Mexican Supreme Court of Justice has defined as the employer’s legal right to control and direct the employee and the employee’s duty of obedience towards the employer. Once a labor relationship exists, the rights and obligations provided for by the FLL automatically apply, regardless of how the agreement is defined by the parties.
