Personnel Records
from Speaker Joseph Beachboard:


Increasingly rigorous state and federal workplace laws have generated tottering stacks of personnel records and full disks in workplaces across America.

It’s tempting to have a spring cleanout. But if you destroy the wrong document, you could be destroying your career. Keep everything, and 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.

Are you confidently up to date on the 2009 changes to recordkeeping management? Test your knowledge:

  • How does the new 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?
  • 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?
  • 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 e-mails?

To help you answer these questions and many more, we’ve brought back our popular audio recording Personnel Records: What to Keep, What to Toss, now hosted by nationally known employment law attorney Joseph Beachboard.

Joe is an engaging, entertaining speaker, and the moderator of the national Labor and Employment Law Advanced Practices (LEAP) Symposium. Joe answers tough questions on retaining and disposing of personnel records … a delicate balancing act with disciplinary documentation, performance evaluations, workplace investigations and medical data.

Joe reviews record-keeping requirements in light of the new laws and regulations. Plus, he shares 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.

Purchase this revealing and instructive audio recording, and soon you’ll clear out those files with confidence!
