Seminar Description

Are You Protecting The Company's Employment Documents?

California employers are required to maintain accurate and complete personnel files. Who has access to those files, and under what circumstances? Civil procedure rules establish parameters for the preservation and production of electronic evidence. How do you know what to maintain? How to protect it? When to produce it?

In this informative and interactive seminar, employment law attorney Karen L. Gabler and intellectual property attorney Glenn J. Dickinson will discuss the maintenance and preservation of employment documentation. Topics covered will include:

  • Mandatory contents of personnel files
  • Where documents should be kept and who should have access to them
  • When employment records can or should be produced
  • Why you should take extra precautions to preserve electronic records, both during and after employment
  • Common mistakes employers make with electronic documents (and how those mistakes can hurt you!)
  • What to do (and not to do!) with computers and mobile phones when an employee leaves
  • Which evidence-preservation methods are best left to outside experts, and why
  • Immediate steps you can take to preserve electronic evidence and protect your company
