Various regulations and federal and state laws mandate retention of specific documents (both traditional paper documents and electronically stored information) for a designated period of time. Unfortunately, these laws overlap and conflict, causing confusion. As the number of laws and risks related to governing records management continues to increase, it becomes even more paramount that organizations and their counsel follow best practices.

The process of organizing, storing and archiving your organization’s records is critical for business success. You need to know what information to store, where to store it, how long to store it and software requirements to access the stored data to ensure the organization is in compliance with government regulations. Just one misstep could lead to legal issues, fines, investigation and possible litigation. If your organization has ever been through a Wage and Hour Audit, Unemployment Claim, Worker Compensation Hearing or Litigation then you know the value of good record keeping.
