MTPE: companies with more than 100 employees are required to have Internal Work Regulations




Document must contain the main provisions that regulate labor relations in the company.


All companies with more than 100 workers, regardless of their type of labor contracts, must have an Internal Labor Regulation, said the Ministry of Labor and Employment Promotion (MTPE).

This document, he specified, will be made known to the employee when he starts working, and its preparation will be the responsibility of the company.

The regulations will include all those managerial, administrative and technical provisions that are necessary for the fulfillment of the obligations of the contracting parties in the employment relationship, he explained.



The MTPE recalled that, through Supreme Decree No. 039-91-TR and complementary regulations, a series of provisions that regulate labor relations must be taken into account.

These include the admission or entry of workers; the days and hours of work, as well as the time of the main feeding; work attendance control standards; and the provisions of permanence in the position that contain the permits, licenses and absences.

The modality of weekly breaks are added; the rights and obligations of the employer and the worker; the norms tending to the promotion and maintenance of harmony between workers and employers; and disciplinary measures.

In addition, they will include the persons or agency in charge of dealing with labor matters and their processing; as well as the basic rules that must be observed in the development of the work activity, with the purpose of protecting hygiene and safety at work, and indications to avoid accidents or other professional risks, as well as the respective instructions to provide the first aid.

Also HIV/AIDS prevention standards; the implementation of lactary; the employer’s actions regarding his staff with tuberculosis; and other provisions that are considered convenient according to the activity of the company.

The MTPE is the competent authority before which employers must submit the request for the approval of their Internal Work Regulations. Once the document is approved, it must be made available to workers within five calendar days, he noted.
