Mexico’s Federal Labor Law (Standard Work Week)

Article 59-62 of the Federal Labor Law (Standard Work Week)

The typical work week in Mexico is six days, from Monday to Saturday. This amounts to a 48-hour work week, with a maximum of eight hours worked during the day, or any time between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. Workers are also entitled to a day of rest for every six days of work.

Night shift workers are allowed to work a maximum of 42 hours per week, anywhere between 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., and no more than seven hours in a night. Night shifts and day shifts may be combined, but the hours worked at night must not be longer than three hours. If the night hours exceed three, the shift is considered a night work shift.
