Free Report for HR Managers: Critical HR Recordkeeping

Free Report from HR Daily Advisor Helps HR Managers Set Up Responsible Recordkeeping Practices

Old Saybrook, CT—December 7, 2010—The HR Daily Advisor® announced today the release of a free white paper for HR managers, Critical HR Recordkeeping, to help employers in setting up responsible recordkeeping practices.

Employee record retention can be a daunting task for employers because there are so many different requirements based on a variety of criteria. In addition to complex federal laws, state and local jurisdictions often impose their own additional requirements. However, keeping good, well-organized records can help HR managers to prove compliance, avoid lawsuits, and provide documentation to defend—and even drive—employment decisions.

Responsible recordkeeping practices begin long before a job candidate walks through the door and extend long after an employee leaves an employer, according to Allen Kato of Fenwick and West LLP and Charles “Trey” Wichmann of Winston and Strawn LLP. Their years of experience practicing employment law provide valuable insight on organizing records legally and effectively. In this special report, they outline their approach to recordkeeping to keep employers out of court.
