Ensure compliance with a reliable records management solution
Human resources (HR) professionals fully understand the risks of being out of compliance. Failing to adhere to complex regulations governing personnel records management can create some major nightmare scenarios for HR:
- An auditor requests every I-9 you have. Your HR department has kept every I-9 for every employee the company has ever hired. You are required to present them all.
- Your company is facing litigation over the termination of an employee, but the employee’s record was destroyed prematurely.
In the complex world of HR rules and regulations, the length of time you hold on to sensitive employee records matters. As retention periods vary and personnel files grow, purging documents on the required date can be difficult if your HR department doesn’t have a reliable records management solution.
