National Summary
Almost every state and federal law includes some requirement that employers retain records demonstrating compliance with those laws. Federal laws with such requirements include everything from the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act (Title VII). In addition to the requirements that are generally applicable, there are also laws requiring employers in certain industries or occupations to maintain additional records related to their employees. Employers must be aware of these requirements specific to their industry and any additional state law requirements as well.
