HR Recordkeeping: What to Keep, What to Toss and the Legal Pitfalls to Steer Clear Of -

Webinar now available On-Demand.

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn what to keep, what to toss/delete, and the legal pitfalls to steer clear of with your HR recordkeeping practices.

HR professionals are well aware of the massive amount of records they must collect, but sometimes knowing what to keep and what to shred or delete can be a puzzle. The importance of keeping certain records can’t be overstated, especially in cases where an employee might be bringing a legal action against the employer. But, in many cases, it’s also just as important to shred or delete records.

And, in this social media, share-everything age, it’s all too easy to inadvertently share confidential, or even highly personal information about the company or employees that should have been kept private. That’s even more possible when organizations have bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies.

HR professionals need to know what can be shared, what must absolutely not be shared, and how all this information can be protected. Even with old-school hard copy records, it’s vital to know the limits on what you can keep and what you can (or must) shred. 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.

Use this in-depth on-demand webinar where Attorney Miranda Watkins of Fisher Phillips LLP will explain the ins and outs of legal issues surrounding HR recordkeeping. You’ll learn what types of HR records you’re dealing with, what you should and shouldn’t keep, your legal obligations, and what to do if federal or state agencies come knocking.

Plus, you’ll learn:

  • Which documents and records you must keep on file, and for how long
  • When state requirements for how long to keep records supersede federal requirements
  • Why keeping everything is almost as dangerous as keeping nothing
  • What exactly constitutes a e-record, including examples of digital data such as computer log-on/off times, Outlook calendars, notes and to-do lists, emails, and more
  • How to determine if your existing document creation, storage, retention, and destruction policies are up-to-date
  • 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 required to
  • And much more!
