Mexican Laws and Regulations

A note has been written by our HR, Payroll and Accounting partners in Mexico, introducing their services. It begins:

“We know there is a lot of information here, and we know you are not looking to be experts in Mexican Labor matters as it might take much time and not be worthwhile for a small volume of staff compared to the staff contracted in HQ.

That’s why we offer Human Resources Administration services, so our customers can have their operation in Mexico assisted by HR Experts who will work shoulder to shoulder with you to keep your company aligned to Mexican Laws and rules, and beyond this, to have the staff focused on their real job.”

The note provides detail under a number of headings which include:

The final heading leads to an important statement:

“Mexico has approved last year a new labor law which established hourly basis but, unfortunately, Social Security charges are based monthly and there do not exist clear

rules to pay on hourly basis yet.

We suggest paying on a monthly basis like a salary for the moment.”
