Personnel Records: What to Keep, What to Toss

In this 75-minute workshop, you’ll learn:

  • What to keep... for how long... and where.

    Discover an airtight, step-by-step records management strategy.

  • How to write legally safe HR documents.

    Learn 10 simple steps to keep you in compliance.

  • The different rules for paper & electronic records.

    Retention and disposal procedures can vary widely.

One simple HR paperwork mistake can cost you big.

Maintaining personnel records used to be a whole lot simpler. Any HR department that wanted to be safe simply used a "keep everything" policy. These days, however, that approach could violate the rules on the “reasonable disposal of sensitive documents.” And if you destroy the wrong document, you could also be damaging the company—and your career. Plus, COVID vaccine verification, testing and exception requests add a whole level of complexity to your recordkeeping compliance.

On November 10, discover how you can toss all that HR paperwork clutter but still keep your lawsuit-proof “armor” when it comes to personnel records. Using plain English (no legalese) this engaging, entertaining webinar will explain all your HR recordkeeping requirements, including your new COVID-related document obligations.

Don’t fall victim to a simple mistake that could have been easily avoided! Remember, in employee legal disputes, the winning case is often the best-documented case.
