Labor & Employment Section REMOTE CLE

co-sponsored by the State Bar of Texas International Law Section

Topic: The Fifth Circuit Enforces Employment At-Will, Choice of Law and Waiver Agreement Against a U.S. Citizen Employee Who Worked in Mexico
Speakers: Marissa Sandoval Rodriguez, CCN; Jeffrey A. Hiller, CCN; Francisco Pena, CCN

United States companies with direct or subsidiary operations in Mexico have long struggled with navigating the intertwining of U.S. and Mexico labor laws when it comes to U.S. citizen or resident employees assigned to work in Mexico. On April 29, 2020, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit issued an important opinion enforcing an employment at-will, choice of law and waiver agreement against a U.S. citizen who worked in Mexico. The Fifth Circuit’s enforcement of a U.S. employer’s employment at-will, choice of law and waiver agreement against a U.S. citizen working in Mexico is an important decision for U.S.-based employers who hire U.S. employees for work assignments in Mexico. The use of an employment at-will, choice of law and waiver agreement in the cross-border employment context requires a fundamental understanding of labor and employment laws in both jurisdictions.
