Personnel Records:
What to Keep, What to Toss

Personnel Records

With all those personnel records around (paper and electronic), it's tempting to have a big spring cleaning. But if you destroy the wrong document, you could destroy your career. And if you keep everything, you may be violating federal rules on the "reasonable" disposal of sensitive documents.

Are you confidently up to date on the recent changes to recordkeeping management? Test your knowledge. Do you know …

Yes   No

         How long you must retain applications, résumés, FMLA certifications and payroll records?

         How the new I-9 rules affect your handling of immigration records?

         How the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act changed your payroll retention requirements?

         The general retention rule of thumb you can safely apply to almost any HR record?

        How your recordkeeping duties change when you "reasonably anticipate" litigation?

         The new rules for storing and deleting company emails?

To help you confidently answer "Yes!" to these and other such questions, we've updated Personnel Records: What to Keep, What to Toss, hosted by employment law attorney Cori Garland.

This engaging, entertaining webinar recording will explain recordkeeping requirements in light of the new laws and regulations. Plus, Cori describes the legally safe best practices for gathering, storing and destroying personnel records.

Responsible HR recordkeeping practices begin long before a job candidate walks through your door. And they extend long after an employee leaves your workforce. Don't fall victim to a simple mistake that could have easily been avoided.

With this revealing and instructive session, you'll soon clear out those files with confidence!
