The pandemic has resulted in many changes, including a higher percentage of work from home positions. Considering the growth of this new form of work, the Mexican government has enacted a labor reform to establish new fair work guidelines. The provisions apply to workers who carry out their activities 40% or more of the time at home. Review some of the key employer and employee responsibilities.

Employer Responsibilities

  • Provide, install and maintain the equipment necessary for working from home, such as computer equipment, ergonomic chairs, and printers, among others
  • Receive work in a timely manner and pay wages in the specified manner and dates
  • Assume the costs derived from work through working from home, including, where appropriate, payment for internet services and the corresponding part of electricity
  • Implement mechanisms that preserve the security of information and data used by workers
  • Respect the right of employees to disconnect at the end of the workday
  • Enroll employees in the mandatory social security regime
  • Promote a balance in the employment relationship of workers, so they can enjoy decent work and equal treatment in terms of compensation, training, education, and social security

Employee Responsibilities

  • Take the greatest care in the storage and conservation of the equipment, materials and supplies that they receive from their employer
  • Provide timely information on the agreed upon costs for the use of internet services and electricity consumption, derived from working from home
  • Follow the data protection policies and mechanisms used in the performance of their activities, as well as the restrictions on their use and storage
  • Use the mechanisms and operating systems to supervise their activities
  • Conduct themselves in accordance with the provisions on safety and health at work

NATO countries have banded together to impose historic sanctions on Russia for their invasion of Ukraine in a display of strength and unity. These sanctions mean that companies currently cannot send payments to Russian banks and trying to get around this can result in significant penalties. While it may seem straightforward, these sanctions have complicated the geopolitical landscape of making international deals that extends beyond the borders of just Ukraine and Russia.
