Puerto Rico Equal Pay Act
The Puerto Rico Equal Pay Act prohibits pay discrimination based on sex. Additionally, it prohibits salary history inquiries, increases pay transparency, and encourages self-evaluation.
If an employer performs a self-evaluation of its pay practices and makes a reasonable effort to eliminate pay disparities, pay penalties may be waived in the event of a remedy for victims of pay discrimination.
