Hmmmm. A "Permanent" retention for all Personnel Files?  The Act does
not remove the statute of limitations. It says the statute of
limitations starts again  "each time wages, benefits or other
compensation [are] paid resulting in whole or in part from [ a
discriminatory] decision or other practice."   A former employee may
receive COBRA benefits or unemployment compensation for some time after
termination, but those things too will end. And the statute of
limitations will start. Even if their retirement benefits were based on
their salary, people don't live forever. Well, Elvis, but he doesn't
count.

Good morning; I conducted my first call with HR and Corporate Legal on
Monday regarding the new law.  Based on research by one of our
litigation attorneys, a preliminary recommendation was made to forego
the current "ACT +10 Years" retention of terminated employee files an
assign a "Permanent" retention period.  However, the discussion did take
into account that it is too early to implement a significantly increased
retention period without a further understanding of precedents and
degree of risk and storage costs.

Hello to all...

I was wondering if anyone on the list would be willing to share their
insights/experiences as to how they have approached and started to make
changes to their policies, programs, or procedures to align themselves
to the Ledbetter Act.  I have reached out to my Legal, HR, and Payroll
Departments and given them my take on things, but I think it would be
valuable to me and my company to consider the thoughts and lessons
learned from outside our little corner of the world.

Thanks!

Brent
