Document Retention and Destruction: What HR Professionals Must Know

Document Retention and Destruction: What HR Professionals Must Know

Make sure you are in full compliance with your current document retention and destruction policies. Many employers lack a document management policy altogether, resulting in inconsistent document retention and destruction--a surefire path to litigation and spoliation claims--and little to no reliable protection for confidential information. Another substantial number of employers rely on generic policies whose sources are unknown, are from a different industry, or rely on a different state’s laws, just to cite a few of a myriad of problems with generic policies. The enormity of creating a model policy unique to a specific employer creates a psychological barrier that hinders the development and implementation of a much needed document management policy. This topic will help you learn the legal requirements for document management policies and understand how to implement the practical considerations unique to their respective companies. Best practices will be emphasized, especially litigation avoidance and satisfying legal requirements. You should be able to begin implementing the principles learned from this topic immediately.
