How to use an Employer of Record in Mexico?

Mexico has a lot more to offer than sunshine and tequila. The country is the fifteenth largest economy, globally, and the second-largest in Latin America.

To hire employees in Mexico, you’ll have to open a local entity in the country, which takes a significant amount of time and resources. You’ll also have to understand Mexican employment laws and handle every aspect of the employment process — draw employment contracts, offer benefits, pay your workers, and ensure compliance with local regulations.

Alternatively, you could make your life easier and partner with an employer of record (EOR) in Mexico to hire employees in Mexico on your behalf. An employer of record is a service that allows you to recruit top talent abroad and onboard them within a few weeks — without having to waste time and money on establishing a legal entity within the country. 

Using an employer of record in Mexico will also ensure that your company remains compliant with the local labor laws, while also providing you and your international employees with a full-scale HR team to handle all the administrative tasks.

What are the benefits of using an employer of record in Mexico?

When you partner with an employer of record in Mexico, the greatest benefit is that you won’t have to go through the time-consuming and expensive process of forming your own legal entity within the country. Plus, you won’t have to find legal counsel within the country or have to worry about outsourcing an HR team.

You’ll also get the added benefit of having a partner that can take care of employment contracts for you, specifying all the legal requirements expected from both sides. This is especially important when taking on international hires because different countries, Mexico included, have different legislation regarding employment contracts.

An employment contract is a critical component because it acts as the foundation for the employer-employee relationship. It defines an employee’s role and responsibilities and contains essential details such as working hours, compensation and benefits, termination clauses and procedures, and more. Typically, while hiring employees in Mexico, the employment contract should include the following details:

  • The full identity of the employer, including place of work (if applicable)
  • Salary or wages 
  • Benefits and compensation regarding paid time off, vacation duration, bonuses, etc.
  • Scheduling, as in the expected hours the employee will be expected to fulfill each workweek
  • Duration of employment, which can be fixed or not 
  • The employee’s specific role and general responsibilities
  • Collective bargaining agreements (CBAs) if applicable
  • Start date of the employment period
  • Notice period and procedures for termination

It should be noted that employment contracts are mandatory in Mexico. There is no “at will” employment, and every employee must enter into an individual agreement with the employer, setting out the terms and conditions of the specified role.

How much does it cost to use an EOR in Mexico?

Generally speaking, actual costs vary depending on the kind of services your company needs and the location and number of workers you want to hire.

EOR services tend to come with two types of pricing: flat-fee structures and percentage structures.

Linkeazi offers a fee based on a percentage model for Mexico — while still offering the highest and strictest standards in compliance and security.
