Human capital is a sensitive subject for all companies in all of its implications, including proper management of labor relations, control mechanisms, complying with all obligations and collective labor disputes.
The current labor situation in Mexico, the protectionist spirit that permeates the Federal Labor Law for the benefit of workers, the criteria issued by both the Federal Court and the Conciliation Board, all point to one conclusion: it is the company that should keep the basic labor documents and must demonstrate before the corresponding authorities or the worker, if need be, the labor conditions under which the employee is meant to perform his/her duties.
Also, the company should never impose arbitrary sanctions but must at all times set the rules under which the work is to be performed within the company and it should apply the established penalties through appropriate means, always within the boundaries set by the Federal Labor Law.
All of this results in employers needing a set of documents specifying the actual working conditions in which work is to be conducted.
