It is not uncommon for West Lafayette, Indiana businesses to let documents pile up over the years. Besides the obvious clutter this can bring to any storage room, legal actions can make this a risky adventure. A large financial firm was ordered to pay $15 million for failing to properly retain records. In records retention, there is no safe way to play it. Keeping too much information is a risk and your West Lafayette, Indiana business could be violating privacy rights. On the other hand, destroying documents prior to required legal retention periods can open your West Lafayette, Indiana business up to costly fees and fines should you ever find your business in a litigation case.
Know When to Shred Your Documents
First, it is important to understand; what a record is, where a record goes, who accesses it and what did they do with it. Sometimes, things like financial spreadsheets could just end up on someone’s desktop computer forever. Identifying the records your West Lafayette, Indiana business produces, and the legal requirements of each record is the first step. The next step is to create a policy behind each record. There are several factors that go into records retention policies. The type of company and business you are, for example a publicly traded company must answer to the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission). Then there is OSHA (Occupational Safety & Health Administration), they require that some health-related records be kept for either 30 years or the duration of a person’s employment plus 30 years. You also have the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission) they state that documents about job applicants and personnel records be kept from one to three years. And the healthcare industry has yet another layer to consider with HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act). You get the picture, this is not a one-person job, legal advice should be sought, department managers brought into the discussion and seek a professional service like SHREDDRS to ensure your documents are destroyed properly and you receive a certificate of destruction.
