Amendments to Mexico’s Federal Labor Law

New Legislation Enacted

Authors: Monica Schiaffino, Shareholder, and Valeria Cutipa, Associate – Littler

On April 28, 2022, two decrees amending various articles of the Federal Labor Law were published in the Official Gazette of the Federation. The first decree establishes the obligation of employers to grant employees unpaid leave to participate in “revocation of mandate” process. The second decree establishes that when the nature of the contracted work seriously compromises the health and/or life of employees, the use of technology and innovative work tools must be considered to prevent them.
