If you anticipate a temporary layoff it is critical to contact the Missouri Department of Labor before taking action. They will help you develop a strategy and may offer some assistance but are unable to help if the layoff has already started. They also can assist with mass claims.

On behalf of the Mexico Area Chamber of Commerce, welcome to Mexico, Missouri!
Mexico is a growing, active community located in Audrain County in northeast central Missouri. I invite you to spend some time on our website so you too can “Discover the Mexico Difference!”

We have excellent public and private educational facilities, over 35 churches of all denominations, an outstanding public library, a historical museum complex, beautiful parks, a historic theatre and performing arts center, abundant activities for the avid outdoorsman, and organized programs and activities for all sports and all ages.
