- Through a video, a doctor who is currently R3 in Jalisco shared the figure she receives for the Christmas bonus.
- By law, the deadline for all workers to receive this bonus is December 20 of each year.
- The Federal Labor Law establishes that it is a right that workers cannot be denied.
The final part of each year is marked by a festive atmosphere and hope. The streets are illuminated and it is a perfect time to visit family or close friends. Although there is also a very special reason to wait for the arrival of December. It is about the payment of the bonus and a Mexican doctor surprised by publishing the amount of what she receives.
First of all you should start with the general definition. The Christmas bonus is a gratuity (benefit) that by law must be received by all the workers of a company by virtue of all the work done during the year. The payment deadline is December 20. With the above in mind, it means that your employer already had to give you your Christmas bonus or you are about to receive it.
How is the bonus payment calculated?
According to the Federal Labor Law (LFT) you must receive the equivalent of 15 days of salary if you complete one year in the same work space. If this is not your case, then you should receive a proportional bonus corresponding to the months you worked. The most important thing is that absolutely everyone has the right to receive this compensation regardless of whether they have worked for a company for less than 12 months.
From the above, the exact payment that any worker should receive can be identified. It all depends on the salary you have, although in the end the bonus may be higher, although it can in no way be less than what corresponds to 15 days of work.
On the other hand, in the field of health it is different, especially when it comes to residents because they lack a legal figure. To date it is not defined if they are workers or students, although in the end they perform both tasks.
To find out the amount corresponding to the Christmas bonus received by a training specialist, Dr. Isabel Salas posted a video about his personal experience. In her case it is a R3 of Gynecology and Obstetrics in Jalisco. Although she is also a digital leader because through her YouTube, Instagram and TikTok accounts she gathers millions of followers.
She also stands out because she is the founder of the company called Is A Scrub. Her mission is to provide a reliable surgical pajamas sales service based on efficiency and professionalism. To adapt to current times, she does not have a physical store but everything works through the internet.
Salary and Christmas bonus that a resident receives
The first thing he mentions is that when he started his residency he had a salary/scholarship of 12,000 pesos a month. Every year that he advanced in his training, they increased him around a thousand pesos, so now that he is R3 he receives 14 thousand pesos.
Regarding the bonus item, he mentions that he receives 30 thousand pesos. While in the middle of the year they also deposit a little more than 20 thousand pesos. Although these are the only two payments he gets during his residency.
How much does a medical resident earn?
Now, something very important is that not all residents receive the same amounts. The differences can be seen in the institutions because they do not pay the same in the IMSS or ISSSTE as private hospitals.
And in your case, do you receive a similar payment for the Christmas bonus?
