The recent Federal Labor Law reform in Mexico is one of the most significant legislative developments of the administration led by former President Felipe Calderón, succeeding where numerous previous reform proposals have failed and left the country’s labor law unaltered since 1970. From the employer perspective, the reform‘s impact is undoubtedly mixed, as many of the previous law’s most burdensome requirements remain in place and some additional responsibilities have been imposed on employers. Yet the amendments usher in a major modernization of Mexican labor law and provide some needed clarity to companies doing business in Mexico, while addressing some of the most important reforms sought by the business community.
