Q. How long should I keep employment-related records, such as wage information and personnel files?

A. There are many records retention requirements under the numerous laws that govern the workplace. In Ohio, however, the limitations period for filing a discrimination claim under state law is six years, so the safest practice is to keep employment-related records for at least that long.
