This Thursday, September 16, the Independence Day of Mexico is celebrated, which, according to the Federal Labor Law, it is a holiday, which indicates that it is mandatory rest in the country.
However, despite the fact that the Constitution marks that it is an official day off, many employees must work this Thursday, so they must ask themselves how much will they pay to work that day?
As determined by the Federal Labor Law, in article 75, Employees working on a mandatory rest day, in this case September 16, must receive a double salary in addition to their normal income, that is, if you receive a payment of 200 pesos for your daily shift, they will have to pay you twice that amount (400 pesos), so you would be getting 600 pesos for working that day.
What does the Federal Labor Law say?
This is what article 75 mentions: “The workers will be obliged to provide the services and will have the right to be paid, regardless of the salary that corresponds to them for the mandatory rest, a double salary for the service rendered.”
Is September 16 a bridge in Mexico?
According to the Federal Labor Law, some holidays go to Monday so that a bridge is formed, that is, that the rest is glued to the weekend. The 16th is a non-working day, but it is a holiday that does not move to bridge.
How many holidays are left in the remainder of 2021?
· November 15 (Monday). Holiday for November 20.
· December 25 (Saturday). It falls on the holiday period.
