  1. Thank you for your responses. From my understanding, workers are entitled to a vacation bonus of minimum 25% of their paid holidays, and this can be paid out in cash. This is aside from the paid vacation days that they're entitled to. I've read on several sites that you're not meant to pay unused vacation days in cash, and that you are not technically allowed to. Of course, there is always an element of choice, but with that premise in mind, I wonder whether these days can be transferred over to the next year if they want to take a longer vacation for example, and whether this is something they're entitled to. With what you are saying in terms of paying the vacation days at the end of the year, is there any website where I may be able to find more information on that matter? Much appreciated, thank you.
  2. Hello, I'm looking for information about domestic workers and vacation days, more specifically whether days unused from previous years roll over to the next years. I looked through the Mexican labor laws, and have not been able to find any information about this. I would like to find out whether there is anything officially stated around this topic. Do you know the answer to this, and/or would you be able to help point me in the right direction? Thank you
  3. Hi everyone! I have a question about the Mexican laws for part time workers with regards to paid vacation. I have been researching a bit and this is what I understood so far: The law is the same for part time and full time workers. Vacation pay is calculated with the "daily rate" as 6 days of salary for the 1st year, 8 days of salary for the 2nd year, and so on (following the specific table with length of service and paid days off). They need to have worked for a year before they can receive their vacation (pay). There is a minimum of 25% holiday bonus for while they are on vacation. My question is as follows: According to the Mexican law, how would I approach this for (for example) my cleaning lady who works 1 day a week? Is she entitled to 6 working days off (theoretically 6 weeks in the year)? If she decides not to take the vacation, I assume she would still be entitled to the vacation pay for that year, is that correct? Is the 25% bonus applicable only if she takes the vacation, not if she decides to continue working? Or is it something she is entitled to regardless of whether she takes days off? I would appreciate anyone who could shed some light on this for me, or point me in the right direction. Thank you! ______________________ These are some of the websites that I referenced: https://insights.tetakawi.com/mexico-labor-law-employee-benefits-basics https://content.next.westlaw.com/3-502-9997?transitionType=Default&contextData=(sc.Default)&__lrTS=20200606164632130&firstPage=true https://yucalandia.com/answers-to-common-questions/labor-law-for-household-employees-in-mexico-what-must-we-pay/
