Join us for an in-depth webinar for the latest on HR recordkeeping do's and don'ts. Here you'll learn the legal and practical aspects of hard-copy and electronic records management. You'll also understand what you should and shouldn't keep, and for how long, as well as your legal obligations if federal or state agencies, come knocking.
You collect a massive amount of employee information in both paper and digital formats. But what do you need to keep, and for how long? And how can you ensure that records remain confidential, especially in this era of sharing online and via smartphones and tablets?
It's your job to know what can be shared, what must absolutely not be shared, and how all information should be properly protected. Even with old-school hard copy records, it's vital to know the rules on what must be kept and for how long and what can be shredded. Knowing what to keep in case of possible civil penalties or litigation and knowing when you must legally destroy certain records can be like walking a tightrope.
