Why Should You Attend:

For HR department documents there are many different federal, state, and local laws and regulations which require that certain personnel records, electronically or on paper, be kept for a specified period of time and even well after the termination of an employee's employment.

State laws may differ and you should refer to sources within all the states in which you do business for final disposition. Many state laws parallel Federal laws. Some documents may be covered under more than one law or regulation (FLSA, ADA, ADEA, FMLA, COBRA, HIPAA etc), so you should adhere to the more stringent requirement. Also, if any area which contains documents under litigation, it is best to retain all records involved until the case is resolved; always refer to your company attorney for guidance.

This webinar will cover federal record-keeping requirements for human resource documents. We will review where records are kept, how long they should be kept and when and how they should be destroyed in order to stay in compliance. Effective Human Resource Departments should have a documented Plan to manage employee records safely and effectively.
