Last 10/26/12, an amendment to the LRT was published, pursuant to the bill proposed by the Executive. The most relevant amendments introduced are an increase of the compensation in cash granted to the affected employee, the cancelling of the compensation made by means of a unique payment, and the elimination of what is currently know as the doble vía. As a consequence of the latter, the employee will now have to choose between filing a civil lawsuit or collecting the severance set forth by the LRT. The bill also establishes that conflicts brought about by these matters will be solved by the Civil Courts.
