The 21st century workplace demands rigorous compliance with a wide array of state and federal employment laws and regulations. Committed to meeting the legal needs of employers Del Toro & Santana has earned a reputation for excellence and responsiveness. With over 25 years of employment law experience, Del Toro & Santana is recognized as one of the leading firms in Puerto Rico in employment law. Our track record speaks for itself.  In 25 years we have lost only one case in this segment of our practice.

We represent clients before state and federal courts, in arbitration, and before administrative agencies and other forums. We also assist clients in their efforts to avoid litigation, including counseling on every aspect of employment law. If an issue arises concerning the workplace, chances are that we have dealt with it.

In addition to traditional employment termination disputes under Puerto Rico's unique Employment Termination Statute or "Law 80" as it is commonly known, the firm has extensive experience in all aspects of employment litigation, including trial work in cases arising under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Civil Rights Act of 1991, the Equal Pay Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, the Family and Medical Leave Act of 1993, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the WARN Act and other federal and state laws regulating the workplace. We also also have extensive experience defending clients against breach of contract claims and the ever-growing list of employment tort claims.

Our labor and employment practice includes preventive counseling. We conduct comprehensive employment audits and RIF notebooks to expose problem areas before they become legal nightmares. Our management training seminars equip supervisors to handle tough workplace issues. Often, we are called upon to review employment policies and procedures manuals to ensure compliance with federal and state laws. Educating supervisors on employment issues and giving employees notice of company expectations results in very real cost savings, as well as intangible personnel benefits.
