When: September 9, 2020
The panelists will discuss the rapid response mechanism with a focus on what American companies need to know to ensure issues are avoided. This novel mechanism provides a new tool in the U.S. – Mexican labor disputes and it is the first of its kind in a free trade agreement. Ultimately, a successful petition could end up in denial of USMCA preferential treatment, denial of entry, and other sanctions.
This webinar will provide:
- Overview of mechanism and requirements
- Overview of Mexican labor law
- Tips on how American companies can prepare
- Recommendations for Mexican Covered Facilities
- Procedural Requirements
