Emergency Executive Order No. 329/2020 banned employment termination without cause, for economic reasons due to lack of work or reduction in operations or for force majeure. The initial term of 60 days has been extended by Emergency Executive Order No. 487 for a total period of 180 days.
In line with this ban, Labor Courts have ordered workers’ reinstatement in a number of cases through interim relief in the context of amparo actions [amparo: constitutional action alleging the violation of rights committed by the government or by a court of law; in federal rules of procedure, constitutional proceedings with no exact equivalence under U.S. law.]
The ban on employment termination without cause, for lack of work or reduction in operations and force majeure has been dangerously extended for 60 more days, until July 29, in accordance with the Emergency Executive Order No. 487/2020 (Official Gazette of May 19, 2020). This is intended to neutralize risks (Emergency Official Gazette No. 329 of March 31, 2020) and preserve jobs as an exceptional measure.
