HR Recordkeeping Update: Compliant Retention, Storage, and Destruction Practices for 2017-18

Live Webinar: Wednesday, July 26, 2017

1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Eastern / 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Pacific


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn which HR records you must keep under federal law—for how long—and what to toss, as well as acceptable storage and destruction methods concerning hard-copy and electronic records.


 

By its very nature, HR is records-driven. This can lead to countless questions, particularly as the digital evolution continues, such as: 

  • What records do I need to keep—and for how long? 
  • Are there some records I must retain hard copies of? 
  • Do I need a hard-copy backup of a record I have elsewhere in electronic form? 
  • How can I be sure I have what we need if we ever get sued? 
  • What goes in an employee’s personnel file, and what gets stored elsewhere? 
  • How do I keep track of the files managers make for their own purposes and keep at their desks? 
  • What safeguards do I need to take to make sure both our electronic and hard-copy records remain confidential? 

In this cloud-based, share-everything era, it’s all too easy to broadcast (whether accidentally or deliberately) confidential or proprietary information about your company or employees that should never be shared.

As an HR professional, you must know how to safeguard, retain, and appropriately dispose of the important information that you’ve been entrusted with, both for the sake of your employees and the sake of your company. Don’t take any chances with this crucial responsibility.

Join us on July 26 when attorney Todd Ewan will cover the latest HR recordkeeping do’s and don’ts and discuss the legal, practical, and logistical aspects of hard and electronic records management.

You’ll learn: 

  • Which documents and records you must keep on file, and for how long—and which federal laws apply 
  • Why keeping everything is almost as dangerous as keeping nothing 
  • What exactly constitutes an e-record, including examples of digital data 
  • When and how to shred hard copies or destroy electronic documents 
  • When your legal duty to preserve records is triggered 
  • What records you should keep even though you are not technically required to 
  • And much more!
