Hi everyone! I have a question about the Mexican laws for part time workers with regards to paid vacation. I have been researching a bit and this is what I understood so far: The law is the same for part time and full time workers. Vacation pay is calculated with the "daily rate" as 6 days of salary for the 1st year, 8 days of salary for the 2nd year, and so on (following the specific table with length of service and paid days off). They need to have worked for a year before they can receive their vacation (pay). There is a minimum of 25% holiday bonus for while they are on vacation. My question is as follows: According to the Mexican law, how would I approach this for (for example) my cleaning lady who works 1 day a week? Is she entitled to 6 working days off (theoretically 6 weeks in the year)? If she decides not to take the vacation, I assume she would still be entitled to the vacation pay for that year, is that correct? Is the 25% bonus applicable only if she takes the vacation, not if she decides to continue working? Or is it something she is entitled to regardless of whether she takes days off? I would appreciate anyone who could shed some light on this for me, or point me in the right direction. Thank you! ______________________ These are some of the websites that I referenced: https://insights.tetakawi.com/mexico-labor-law-employee-benefits-basics https://content.next.westlaw.com/3-502-9997?transitionType=Default&contextData=(sc.Default)&__lrTS=20200606164632130&firstPage=true https://yucalandia.com/answers-to-common-questions/labor-law-for-household-employees-in-mexico-what-must-we-pay/
