Share Article

Business 21 Publishing presents an audio conference on September 21 at 2 p.m. Eastern entitled 'Personnel Document Retention: What You Need to Keep, What You Don't.'

COURSE DESCRIPTION: Did you know that if you're sued and fail to produce documents that should have been retained, courts often assume that such records would have supported the plaintiff, which destroys your credibility and compromises your case?

Did you know that without proper records your company could fail an audit from any number of agencies, resulting in large penalties?

And did you know that under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, destroying records related to an investigation or dispute can lead to a 20-year prison term.

It pays to really understand the rules about personnel record retention? If like most companies you integrate data between different departments, collecting and maintaining data can be a real challenge.

You need to understand both state and federal laws that govern what employment records must be kept and for how long. Adding to the complexity is the fact that state laws sometimes differ from federal ones.

In this seminar, employment law attorney Jodi T. Plavner will answer the following questions about personnel file record retention:

-How long must we keep various employment records?

-What are the key elements of a personnel record retention policy?

-Where and how must records be maintained?

-How can I create a policy that covers standard and non-standard types of records?

-What should our policy be for destroying records?

-What about retention of electronic records such as email?

-What does the important Zubulake v. UBS Warburg record retention case mean to our company?

Consistency and thoroughness are key!
