Effective employee management requires accurate and useful personnel records. Several laws contain either explicit or implicit recordkeeping requirements. These laws include the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA) , the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) , the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) , the Rehabilitation Act , Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 , Immigration Reform and Control Act (IRCA) , Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) , the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and others. Working Solutions designs and implements record retention systems that comply with these requirements while providing supervisors and employees with the information they need.
