Hiring contractors in Puerto Rico can be a rollercoaster

Furthermore, you have to classify contractors correctly and ensure they have the proper work visa if they aren’t US or Puerto Rican citizens. With Rippling, you can maintain compliance with local laws in Puerto Rico—and beyond—while quickly growing your global team.
