Puerto Rico’s Department of Labor and Human Resources postpones mandatory e-filing of unemployment quarterly returns

The Puerto Rico Department of Labor and Human Resources (PRDLHR) has postponed the mandatory e-filing of unemployment quarterly returns through the Employers’ Portal from the first quarter, due 30 April 2019, to the second quarter of 2019, due 31 July 2019. For the unemployment quarterly returns due 30 April 2019, employers may still file on paper.


Employers must coordinate with their payroll departments or service providers to make sure they have the necessary access to the portal to comply with this new mandatory e-filing requirement for the second quarter of 2019.
