Employment Records and How to Keep Them

Employment records are extensive and complex, the FFCRA has added new records to keep – without clear guidance. Human Resources, payroll, safety, and auditing professionals have ongoing questions about what employment records are required to be retained, and for how long. However, this is only the start of the issues. The legal requirements and employer liabilities go far beyond these simple issues. Your record keeping procedures are an important consideration when it comes to a dispute with a current or former employee, and whether your documentation will even hold up before a Court, the EEOC, or some other regulatory agency.

This program provides information not just on what records you should keep and for how long, but on the several underlying and even more important issues of record creation, storage, and the DON’TS which create the major liabilities.
