Feeling trapped in an office full of job postings, applications, resumes, health information, immigration status forms, reference checks, payroll records, and a myriad of personnel files?

Use caution before turning on the shredder! The Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act may now require you to hold onto those files a while longer. And the revamped I-9 and EEO-1 forms, along with stepped up privacy law enforcement, have made HR records management even more challenging.

Learn which records you MUST keep and which ones you can safely throw away by participating in the all-new HR Hero audio conference, What to Save, What to Shred: What New Laws Say About Handling Personnel Files.

In just 90 minutes, a certified SPHR who is also an experienced employment law attorney will show you the very latest legal dos and don'ts for managing your personnel records and will answer such questions as:

  • How does the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act change how payroll records should be handled?
  • How should the revamped I-9 and other immigration records be handled? Now that Homeland Security is auditing more employers, should you take further action to ensure your files will pass government scrutiny?
  • What about the ADA Amendments Act and possible dangers it raises with respect to personnel records management?
  • What about record retention? How long should employers keep a charge filed with the EEOC and records related to that charge?
  • What’s the latest on electronically stored information (ESI)? What are the legal risks to storing your personnel files electronically? What about identity theft risks?
  • What should be kept in an employee’s regular personnel file? Should you keep all hiring records, evaluations, disciplinary actions, payroll and benefits records, etc.?
  • What special protections must be provided for medical information? What obligations are imposed by the ADA, the FMLA, and HIPAA?
  • Should a third party be allowed to see an employee’s personnel file?
  • When, if ever, should an employee be allowed to write and add information to a file?
  • Which company representatives should have access to employee files?
  • What personnel records, if any, should supervisors be allowed to keep in their own filing systems?
  • How often should files be reviewed to ensure that the information is up to date?
  • Audio Conference BONUS: When you participate in this audio conference, you'll get a state-specific chart with legal guidelines for addressing such questions as: When can records be thrown out and what questions need to be asked before anything is purged? Who owns the personnel file? For example, should you turn over a file if an employee or the employee’s attorney asks to see it?
