On May 8, 2019, the Secretary of the Puerto Rico Department of Labor (PR-DOL) issued the first edition of its “Guidelines for the Interpretation of Puerto Rico’s Employment Legislation” in an effort to provide guidance and a general overview of its interpretation of Puerto Rico’s employment statutes and regulations. Join us for a webinar discussing what the Guidelines say about the changes introduced through the Employment Law Reform of 2017, including:

  • Framework that courts should apply when analyzing employment law claims
  • Which provisions of the Employment Law Reform have “grandfathering” clauses
  • Employment contract aspects
  • Religious accommodation
  • Vacation and sick leave
  • Work schedules and overtime
  • Lactation accommodations
  • Presumption of unjust dismissal under Act No. 80 and the “just cause” concept
  • Provisions of Mandatory Decrees that are still in effect
