Labor Law Updates

As of April 24, 2021, Mexico’s Federal Labor Law now

prohibits the subcontracting of personnel, which is the practice of

an entity outsourcing an employee to be available for the benefit

of another entity. However, the law was amended to allow the

subcontracting of specialized services and of services for the

execution of work that are not a part of the receiving

company’s core business.

Furthermore, company registrations must now be renewed every

process the registration within 20 days after its receipt, and if

not completed within this term, the said registration will be

considered as having been approved.
