There are a wide range of federal and state laws that require
employers to retain employee records for a specified period of time. Federal
laws with such requirements include everything from the Fair Labor Standards
Act (FLSA) to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended in 1991.
The records that must be kept include everything from wage and hour information,
I-9 forms, and records related to job applicants. In addition to the requirements
that are generally applicable, there are laws requiring employers in certain
industries or occupations to maintain additional records related to their
employees. Employers must be aware of requirements specific to their industry
and any additional state law requirements as well.
