On December 27th, 2022, a reform to articles 76 and 78 of the Federal Labor Law was published in the Official Gazette of the Federation, regarding employee’s vacations.

From January 1, 2023, all employees with a current contract will have the right to enjoy 12 days of vacation after the first year of work. The number of days will increase each year by two days until reaching 20 days; from the sixth year on, the period will increase by two days for every five years of seniority. 

The resulting changes from this decree shall be applied to all active labor agreements, whether they be individual or collective, as long as they result in a more favorable outcome for the employee.

Employees shall have the right to enjoy 12 continuous days of vacations and the employees will have the right to distribute that period of time in order to rest in the manner and time they require.

The following is a table that further describes the way in which the vacations will operate:
