Mexican Labor Laws 2023 – Vacation Days


Whether it’s your first time or you have hired workers in Mexico before you will want to brush up on the Mexican labor and employment laws and learn of any new ones for this coming year. The most noteworthy change is the bump in vacation days for Mexican workers.




Mexicans on average work more than other workers in the west, yet they receive the fewest paid vacation days. The effective date is not defined at the time of writing this but Mexico’s Senate of the Republic approved a bill that would modify articles 76 and 78 of Mexico’s Federal Labor Law (FLL) to entitle employees to more paid vacation days. Reference the graphic below to see the changes. 


If you are hiring independent contractors it may be a good idea to pay off their vacation days or allow them to take the allowed time off as it can keep morale high



In the image, you can see on the left the years needed to work in order to receive the number of vacation days that are displayed on the right. For example, after working with a company for a year the employee deserves 12 vacation days, for 2 years it’s 14 days, all the way up to 31-35 years get 32 days.
