Article 28 of Mexico's Federal Labor Law:
Does it protect Mexican workers abroad?
The objective of this report is to determine if Article 28 of the Mexican Federal Labor Law of 1970 (the “LFT,” by its Spanish acronym), which regulates the provision of services by Mexican workers outside of the Republic of Mexico, constitutes a viable and effective legal recourse in situations where the LFT’s minimum standards are violated to the worker’s detriment, be it by individual labor recruiters, recruitment agencies, the foreign employer, or the Mexican government.
