Reforms to the Federal Labor Law

January, 2013

Reforms to the Federal Labor Law

On September 28, 2012, the Chamber of Deputies of the Congress of the Union approved a decree amending various provisions of the Federal Labor Law (Ley Federal del Trabajo (LFT)). Such decree was sent to the Chamber of Senators of the Congress of the Union as the reviewing chamber. On October 24, that legislative body approved the decree making certain changes (only adding 8 articles regarding union life and transparency) and returned it to the Chamber of Deputies for its review (and possible approval) of the changes made by the Senators.

Subsequently, the Chamber of Deputies approved the majority of the additions sent by the Senators, with the exception of two amended articles and the complete elimination of two other articles completely. Consequently, such minute was again sent to the Senate for its review.
