California HR Recordkeeping Update 2018: What To Keep, What To Toss, And What To Scan

Webinar: ID# 1026371
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
If you’re in HR, there’s no two ways about it: You’re in the employee records business.

As you know, it’s an ongoing battle to figure out what to keep, what to toss, what can be scanned, and how to properly secure private information. Records must be retained and readily available in the event of an audit or lawsuit, but keeping records for too long poses its own set of legal problems.

Don’t head for the shredder and cross your fingers. Instead, join us for an informative session specifically for California employers on proper HR recordkeeping practices.

You’ll learn:
  • Which documents and records you must continue to keep on file, and for how long, under federal and California law
  • How to tell which rule applies—state or federal—for determining how long you must keep a record
  • Why keeping everything is almost as dangerous as keeping nothing
  • How HR records can be used as a sword, or a shield, in lawsuits against your company
  • How to determine if your existing document creation, storage, retention, and destruction policies are up-to-date according to
  • California law
  • When and how to shred hard copies or destroy electronic documents—such as for terminated employees
  • What exactly constitutes an e-record, including examples of digital data such as computer log-on/off times, Outlook calendars, notes and to-do lists, emails, and more
  • When your legal duty to preserve records is triggered
  • What records you should keep even though you are not required to
