    The Christmas Aguinaldo in Mexico
    When the festive-season holiday approaches, workers in Mexico look forward to their annual Christmas bonus, known as el Aguinaldo.

    Mexican labor law stipulates that all formally-employed people must receive an Aguinaldo equivalent to at least 15 days of wages, and it must be paid before December 20. This is in addition to any regular pay or other benefits that the employer offers. In practice, many of the big companies in Mexico pay 30 days — effectively paying employees 13 months of salary per year— and some employers split this into two payments: one-half paid at Christmas and the other half in the summer.

    If you live in Mexico and hire any domestic staff informally it’s important to pay them an Aguinaldo in December. This may include maids, caretakers, care-givers, gardeners, pool maintenance people, etc.
