Retention Guidelines

It’s important for all businesses and employers to be familiar with all relevant federal and state record retention laws. They are located all over the Code of Federal Regulations and a good start would be CFR 200.333. Of course, all of the federal regulatory agencies mandate their own specific schedules. ( HIPAA, FACTA, Americans with Disabilities Act, etc.)
 
The guidelines that we provide are just .guidelines. We encourage all businesses to consult with their accountant and/or legal counsel to ensure compliance. NOTE: There are acceptable cases where specific records may be retained past required retention schedules. This, however must be documented as to the rationale for doing so. Remember: arbitrary “over-retention” can NEVER help you, it can only hurt you.
