Mexico’s Federal Labor Law (Christmas Bonus)

Article 87 of the Federal Labor Law (Christmas Bonus)

Like many countries in Central and Latin America, employers in Mexico pay workers a Christmas bonus, known as aguinaldo. This bonus is sometimes called the thirteenth salary, and employers must pay their employees their bonuses by December 20 of each year. If an employer fails to provide their employee with an aguinaldo, it could cost them financial penalties of up to 5,000 times the Updated Metric Unit (UMA), which is an economic reference point used to calculate payments or penalties owed to the government.
