Mexico Health Emergency Decree

    View Author March 2020

    Late last night, March 30, 2020, the government of Mexico issued a decree declaring a Health Emergency, with seven basic measures. While the decree leaves many details to be filled – especially what an “essential industry” is and what happens to manufacturing plants involved in the Health and National Security industries, the government has stated that employers are not to stop paying salaries and that labor relations remain in effect, while reiterating that all employees who can work from home in some way should continue working.
