Selection order for dismissals and layoffs in detail

As a general rule there is no statutory selection order for dismissals under Mexican law. This means that the employer is not obliged to follow a specific procedure for redundancies and there is no need to inform the employees in advance about the termination of their employment. Some specific rules regarding the procedure that the employer must follow in selecting the personnel to be dismissed apply: employees with a shorter length of service will be selected for dismissal, ahead of those with greater seniority.
