Q. My company owns a large manufacturing facility in Georgia. I’m familiar with federal requirements, but does Georgia provide for record-keeping requirements under state fair employment practice laws?
A. Yes. Under Georgia law, employers with 15 or more employees, labor organizations and employment agencies are subject to record-keeping requirements. In accordance with the Georgia Fair Employment Practices Act, all records relevant to the determination of whether an unlawful employment practice has been committed must be kept for at least one year.
