Hiring contractors in Mexico can be a rollercoaster

Mexico is home to a booming population of independent contractors—as much as 60% of the country’s population is engaged in some form of informal labor. Still, hiring contractors in Mexico can be intimidating if you don’t know Mexican labor and employment laws. You have to classify your workers correctly, comply with the civil code and commercial regulations that define contractor relationships, and know how to ensure your company owns any IP created by contractors you hire. But with Rippling, you can grow your global team quickly and compliantly.
