Program Description

On January 26, 2017, the Governor of Puerto Rico, Ricardo Rosselló-Nevares, signed the Labor Transformation and Flexibility Act (“LTFA”). The LTFA is a comprehensive labor and employment reform applicable to private employers in Puerto Rico that extends to hiring and termination practices, wage and hour provisions, and operating hours.

This one hour webinar is designed to discuss, explain and clarify the changes and impact the LTFA will have in the workplace.  Attendees will be able to identify and understand most issues related to the Act, how to deal with the new changes, and avoid potential pitfalls.
