A Puerto Rico Employment Law Attorney Can Help Advise On and Manage Labor and Employment Law Matters

Labor and employment law is arguably one of the most important areas of the law;  it governs the rights and obligations of employers and employees, guaranteeing free and equal job opportunities for everyone’s benefit. At the same time, it is also one of the most challenging areas of the law, with seemingly insignificant distinctions that can make the difference between sound employment practices and liability exposure. For businesses both large and small, a Puerto Rico employment law attorney from Delgado & Fernández, LLC can help you successfully navigate the challenges you may face.

Experienced Employment Representation

Delgado & Fernández, LLC frequently advises clients on preventive alternatives and policies. Notwithstanding this, litigation of employment claims is not always avoidable. Moreover, Puerto Rico has an extensive array of employment statutes that make this practice more intensive than what is typical in the United States. We have an experienced team of attorneys who provide counseling to employers in matters related to federal and state litigation of unjust dismissal, discrimination, wage and hour, FMLA, ERISA, non-competition agreements, sexual harassment claims, and labor arbitration claims as well as claims under the Labor Management Relations Act and its local counterpart.

Our attorneys have a remarkable track record defending employment claims through motion practice, as well as extensive trial experience defending claims before judges and juries in local and federal courts.
