Personnel records documenting the management of employees are important records in all organizations. Some of these need to be maintained for long periods of time, often after an employee has left the organization, in order to protect ongoing rights and interests of the employee and the organization. Personnel records that contain information about individuals are also likely to be highly sensitive and personal and must be adequately protected from unauthorized access.
Federal and state regulations mandate the recording and keeping of certain types of documents. Failure to properly do so may causes negative consequences, especially including costly penalties and fees. The attorneys at WLG can help you develop and implement an organized approach to your employee record-keeping that will keep you in compliance with the governmental requirements.
