The Mexican market can seem to be very employer oriented, but legislation and court precedents are very protective of employee rights. It is important to keep this in mind, and to be proactive and keep a close eye on compliance throughout recruitment, contracting and eventual termination of employee relations. Ensuring a healthy working environment and prioritising compliance and employee welfare, with market-consistent benefits, is the best way to prevent labour disputes from arising and achieve a corporation’s full potential.
