Work-Life Balance

Though the rights to privacy, to social security, to equality and to non-discrimination are constitutionally protected in Mexico, in practice, serious violations of these rights exist in the labor market. Among the most common irregularities include the lack of social security for those who work in the informal economy, salary gaps between men and women, and gender stereotypes that continue to permeate laws and policies.

GIRE works to promote equality so that men and women can achieve work-life balance through measures such as access to daycare for mothers and fathers who work, flexible schedules and maternity and paternity leave.
