Employers Must Implement Training Programs for Employees or Risk Steep Fines

On June 14, 2013, Mexico's Department of Labor and Social Welfare ("STPS") published final rules outlining an employer's obligation to develop and implement detailed employee training programs that will foster productivity.

Given the penalties for noncompliance, employers should immediately implement changes to their practices to comply fully with the law.
