With all those paper and electronic records around, it’s tempting to have a big clean-out day. But if you destroy the wrong document, you could be destroying your career.
If you keep everything, you may be violating federal regulations on the “reasonable” disposal of sensitive documents. Keep nothing, and you’re virtually guaranteed to lose in any legal battle.
To help you answer these questions and many more, we’ve updated our popular event Personnel Records: What to Keep, What to Toss, hosted by nationally known employment law attorney Joseph Beachboard. Join us on Oct. 17.
Are you confidently up to date on the recent changes to recordkeeping management? Test your knowledge:
- How long must you retain: applications, résumés, FMLA certifications, payroll records, safety records and much more?
- Do the new I-9 rules affect how you handle immigration records?
- How does the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act change the retention requirements for your payroll records?
- What’s the general retention rule of thumb you can safely apply to almost any HR record?
- Are you officially overdue for reviewing your files to ensure all employee information is up to date?
- Your recordkeeping duties change when you “reasonably anticipate” litigation. But what does THAT mean? And which records must you retain in such cases?
- 70% of corporate records are stored electronically. Do you know the new Federal Rules of Civil Procedure for storing and deleting company emails?
Joe Beachboard is an engaging, entertaining speaker, and the moderator of the national Labor and Employment Law Advance Practices (LEAP) Symposium. As part of the Q&A portion of the workshop, Joe will answer YOUR tough questions on retaining and disposing of personnel records … a delicate balancing act with disciplinary documentation, performance evaluations, workplace investigations and medical data.
Joe will review recordkeeping requirements in light of the new laws and regulations. Plus, he’ll share best practices for gathering, storing and destroying personnel records.
Responsible HR recordkeeping practices begin long before a job candidate walks through your door. And they extend long after an employee leaves your workforce. Don’t fall victim to a simple mistake that could have easily been avoided.
Please join us on Oct. 17 for this revealing and instructive event, and soon you’ll clear out those files with confidence!
