If you thought the “paperless office” would make your job easier, think again. Keeping up with electronic records as well as paper documentation has actually made your job twice as complex … and twice as legally dangerous.
Many new HR laws and regulations carry stringent rules on electronic records – and stiff penalties for noncompliance. And you can be sure that a savvy plaintiff’s attorney will pounce on any electronic sins of commission OR omission.
Employers across the country are scrambling to decipher the legal rules for filing … retaining … protecting … and destroying their e-records. And each decision seems to lead to another question (Must I keep hard copies, too? Do the “separate files” rules also apply to electronic personnel records? Is “delete” the same as “destroy”?)
Join us on Aug. 6 for Electronic HR Records: Compliance/Best Practices Workshop. In this interactive webinar, attorney and nationally recognized record-keeping expert Joe Beachboard will examine today’s (and tomorrow’s) electronic record-keeping issues … providing practical advice on communicating your policies to managers.
Electronic HR Records: Compliance/Best Practices Workshop will cover:
1. Record Retention: What, Where and for How Long
2. Enforceable Agreements: What’s Legal in the E-world
- How electronic retention rules differ from paper standards
- How to know when it’s safe to scan a document and dump the paper original
- Retention policy changes needed due to the new Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act requirements
- The best methods for keeping records safe and secure

3. E-Discovery and Information Management
- Legal requirements when allowing individuals to complete applications online
- What counts as a “legal” electronic signature
- When can you change company policies via e-mail
- The key steps to an effective electronic records management system
- Which records you must be prepared to produce if hit with a legal complaint
- What’s a “litigation hold” and when are you required to apply it to your electronic records disposal?
- The safest way to dispose of electronic HR records—and the questions to ask yourself before you do so
- How the new Federal Rules of Civil Procedure should alter your policy for storing and deleting company e-mails
These days, 70% of corporate records are stored electronically. Those electronic records can be your best legal friend … or your worst enemy.

FREE Registration Bonus Gift: Personnel Records: What to Keep, What to Toss (Audio Recording) presented by Joe 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.
