It’s been a year since the enactment of the Puerto Rico Employment Reform, which amended around a dozen employment laws and has changed the landscape of doing business in Puerto Rico. Join us for a webinar to explore the following:

  • General overview of the Reform
  • Day-to-day challenges faced by employers when implementing the Reform
  • Puerto Rico Department of Labor (PR-DOL) interpretation of the Reform
  • Recent PR-DOL regulations on religious accommodation and payment of annual Christmas bonus
  • Other new developments: the Puerto Rico Equal Pay Act, PR-DOL opinions, repeal of certain PR-DOL regulations and mandatory decrees, medical marijuana legislation and proposed employment legislation.
