Workers' Comp: Legal Issues and Best Practices

Decipher the legal rules for filing, retaining, protecting and destroying e-records.

Electronic HR Records: Compliance & Best Practices Workshop

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.

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”?).
