In an effort to become more competitive in the face of a flagging economy and to become an attractive jurisdiction for establishing businesses and creating employment opportunities—and to increase talent acquisition and retention locally—Puerto Rico is overhauling its employment law regime through the enactment of the Labor Transformation and Flexibility Act.
