Under section 1916 of the Civil Code of Mexico City and the equivalent law in other states of the country, “moral damage” is defined as the profound alteration that a person suffers in their feelings, affections, beliefs, decorum, honor, reputation, private life, configuration and physical aspects, or to the regard in which they are held by others produced by an act, activity, conduct or illicit behavior. Employees may, in civil proceedings, sue a company for moral damages due to discriminatory treatment during the employment relationship or at the time of dismissal.
