Attention, fellow citizens! It seems like some sneaky employers in Mexico have been up to no good, shirking their responsibility to pay out profit sharing (PTU) to their hardworking employees. The Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) recently uncovered several irregular practices, and they've decided enough is enough. Brace yourselves for some enlightening information about what's been going on and what the IMSS is doing to put a stop to it!
To set the stage, the technical council of the IMSS has given its seal of approval to a criterion aimed at guiding employers on the exclusions they've been trying to slip through the cracks. These exclusions involve PTU payments that exceed the legal limit or are paid outside the specified timeframe, as well as payments disguised as productivity bonuses. Sneaky, right?
