Personnel Records: What to Keep, What to Toss (Executive Summary)
Learn the answers to your critical questions about retaining and disposing of personnel records with Personnel Records: What to Keep, What to Toss.
You'll learn how to develop a sound records-retention policy to keep you out of legal hot water … an especially high risk when dealing with disciplinary documentation, performance evaluations, workplace investigations and medical data.
If you keep everything, you're on the hook for not complying with the Federal Trade Commission's "disposal rule," which requires you to dispose of paper and electronic records used in applicants' credit checks in a reasonable way. If you keep nothing, you're virtually guaranteeing that you'll lose every legal battle.
So what should you do? What does "reasonable" mean? Find out — plus learn much more — in this Executive Summary, based on our ultra-popular audio conference by nationally recognized employment law attorney Jonathan Landesman.
A peek at what you'll learn:
- How long to retain job applications, résumés, job descriptions, disciplinary letters, attendance records, leave requests, medical-related data, employment agreements, payroll records, salary information, benefits information, and more
- Electronic storage requirements and how they differ from paper storage
- Which documents you should maintain in separate files
- How to handle medical records, and who should — and should not — have access to those files
- Legally smart documentation for performance reviews, investigations and discipline
- What to do when an employee (or lawyer) asks to review their personnel file
- Best practices for safely destroying records
In the event of a lawsuit, the right document can support your case and bring the costly legal process to a swift and satisfying conclusion. Make sure you're ready with Personnel Records!
