  • Drafting employment contracts in the correct language

  • Managing payroll and taxes, including withholdings and deductions payments

  • Administering local benefits, such as private health insurance 

  • Registering with the local social security system, foreign tax authorities, and other government institutions

  • Offering support and navigating terminations and severance

Benefits of Hiring Remote Workers in Mexico

Choosing to hire in Mexico has benefits, including new talent, ideal location, and cost savings. 

Tap Into a Wider Talent Pool

With the growing popularity of remote work, Mexico has attracted fresh new talent worldwide with a wide set of skills. Hiring in Mexico gives you access to highly skilled talent with diverse perspectives and experience. 

Centrally Located 

Mexico is centrally located and has strong international relationships with the US, Canada, Costa Rica, and other parts of Latin America. Its proximity to the U.S. also means a less dramatic time difference than other countries making coordinating work schedules less complicated. Using an EOR service like Justworks allows you to expand more easily into Latin America and reach a wider customer base. 

Lower Employee Costs

Mexico’s lower cost of living means lower employment costs. Companies can hire top talent and offer competitive salaries and compensation packages at a lower cost than large tech hubs like New York and San Francisco.

Employee Rights for Remote Workers

While Justworks EOR can help you navigate local employment regulations, here are some things to be aware of. 


The Ministry of Labour and Social Work established a decree in 2022 outlining an employer’s workplace safety and health obligations for teleworkers. Under this decree, employees must outline a telework policy, document the differences between remote work and on-site work, protect employees’ data, respect work-life balance boundaries, offer equipment or compensation for remote work equipment, and maintain an updated list of remote workers. Employees must comply with their employer’s telework policy, inform their employer of address changes, protect sensitive company data, and comply with workplace health and safety policies.
