Consolidations, Shutdowns and Downsizing

The major personnel changes attendant to mergers and acquisitions are also present in shutdowns, consolidations and downsizing. Moreover, plant closing legislation and termination benefits under Mexican labor Law generate certain obligations that, if not handled correctly, can lead to a significant liability. Based on extensive experience in these areas, we are able to advise employers not only in the Law, but in how employees and unions typically react when economic conditions force business to contract.

By anticipating problems, we are able to assist employers in structuring and implementing decisions that protect them legally, and at the same time, mitigate against the strife and disruption that so often accompany downsizing in the workplace.
