Pedro Pierluisi signs law that extends protections to employees who testify in investigations of the three branches of government

The governor Pedro Pierluisi signed into law a legislative measure that expands protection against retaliation towards public and private workers who offer testimonies in investigations conducted by some of the three branches of government.

The new statute goes into effect just as multiple employees of the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation testify before the Legislature and the Justice Department on the release of the feminicide Hermes Avila Vazquezwho faked paraplegia to get a pass of health.

He House Bill 834 clarifies that the law’s protections apply to all types of employees, including temporary employees. In addition, the legislation establishes that the protection of verbal or written expressions is also subject to the established internal procedures of companies.

Likewise, the measure includes changes in the definition of “employees”, so that it includes “any person who provides services in exchange for wages, or any type of remuneration, through an oral, written, explicit or implicit contract, without distinction of the nature of their position or classification, whether hired indefinitely or for a specific period of time.
