This webinar was originally presented in March 2010.
All employers face numerous recordkeeping requirements -- particularly records related to human resource issues. Unfortunately, many employers lack even a basic policy or process for record management, retention and destruction. Likewise, many employers are overwhelmed by the sheer volume of records that need to be managed.
What employment law records need to be created? While some managers fail to create the necessary records to substantiate employment law decisions, on occasion, managers create records that do more harm that good. Learn how to convince your managers to create beneficial and appropriate records. Once employment law records are created, where and how should the records be kept and for how long? Ever wonder if some records don't belong in a personnel file?
What is "threatened litigation" and how does it impact your record keeping obligations? Court decisions and changes to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure have made non-compliance with record keeping requirements an extremely expensive and dangerous proposition. Non-compliance can result in fines against company employees personally and multi-million dollar judgments against the company. More than ever, employers need a process for managing employment-related records. In this webinar, the attorneys of Fisher & Phillips LLP will discuss what records should and should not be created, how long records need to be retained and important limits on record destruction if the employer is on notice of a legal claim.
