Webinar: Essential HR Recordkeeping from Hiring to Firing
Tuesday, June 11, 2019, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

HR’s recordkeeping function is crucial to their role as a strategic business partner. Nothing is as important as knowing the compliance rules regarding documentation, notices, and record retention. With technology so integrated into HR’s role, understanding what can and can’t be retained electronically is essential.

All HR functions have federal recordkeeping requirements – from recruitment and selection, to hiring and onboarding, to compensation and benefits, to employee relations (policy administration, disciplinary actions, terminations) and training – including more than 17 employment laws regarding recordkeeping alone. Without proper recordkeeping, you are less likely to pass government audits and less likely to win lawsuits. This webinar will outline recordkeeping requirements, how to ensure compliance, and the consequences of noncompliance.
