With all those personnel records around (paper and electronic), it’s tempting to have a big clean-out. But if you destroy the wrong document, you could destroy your career. And if you keep everything, you may be violating federal rules on the “reasonable” disposal of sensitive documents.

This engaging, entertaining session explains recordkeeping requirements in light of the new laws and regulations. Plus, Joe describes the legally safe best practices for gathering, storing and destroying personnel records.

Joe is a popular speaker at HR conferences around the country, and the moderator of our national Labor and Employment Law Advance Practices (LEAP) Symposium. As part of the Q&A portion of the workshop, Joe answers your colleagues' questions on retaining and disposing of personnel records … a delicate balancing act with disciplinary documentation, performance evaluations, workplace investigations and medical data.

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. Clear out those files with confidence!
