California HR Recordkeeping Updates for 2017: What to Keep—For How Long—and What to Toss - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

HR records can easily accumulate, whether in paper or digital format. Add to that the complexities of California regulations around recordkeeping and CA HR professionals have their work cut out for them.

Governor Brown passed the California Fair Pay Act in late 2015, and AB 1513 became effective at the beginning of 2016. AB 1513 introduced a few non-negotiable records that many employers will have to generate and maintain regarding requirements for a separate hourly wage for “nonproductive” time worked by piece-rate employees, and separate payment for rest and recovery periods to those employees.

The Fair Pay Act is even less straightforward—employers will need to develop a record-generating and recordkeeping practice that provides the factual basis for a defense in case of legal action brought under the Fair Pay Act. And how specific it needs to be will depend on each employer’s individual circumstances.

It’s essential for you to know what can be shared, what can’t, and how all information should be protected. That even goes for “old-school” hard copy records, which have their own rules for shredding. Knowing what to keep in case of possible civil penalties or litigation and knowing when you must legally destroy certain records, especially with new laws affecting pay and personnel policy, can be like walking a tightrope.

Use this in-depth webinar on-demand for a succinct explanation from seasoned California employment attorney Allen Kato, who will teach you Golden State HR recordkeeping do’s and don’ts, as well as what’s likely coming in the year ahead.

You’ll learn: 

  • The latest on rules and regulations affecting California HR recordkeeping obligations 
  • Which documents and records you must continue to keep on file, and for how long 
  • How to tell whether state or federal law dictates how long you must retain certain employment records 
  • Why keeping everything is almost as dangerous as keeping nothing 
  • How to determine if your existing document creation, storage, retention, and destruction policies are up-to-date according to California law 
  • When and how to shred hard copies or destroy electronic documents—such as for terminated employees 
  • When your legal duty to preserve records is triggered 
  • What records you should keep, even though you are not legally required to 
  • And much more!
