easily editable in ms wordPersonnel Records Procedure

The Personnel Records Procedure helps management determine employee qualifications for promotion, compensation, termination or disciplinary action. The personnel record procedure also outlines the methods for filing, retaining and disposing of personnel records.

The Personnel Records Procedure applies to all personnel files, forms and records used for internal and/or external purposes. (16 pages, 4119 words)

Your company should maintain a set of personnel files for each employee. An employee’s personnel record begins with their completed employment application form and resume. From time to time information should be added to this personnel record regarding an individual’s employment status with the company. Personnel records are the property of your company and should be treated the same as any other confidential company information.

Personnel Record Responsibilities:

The Controller should be responsible for overseeing the execution of company policy for Personnel records.

The Human Resources Manager should be responsible for overseeing the retention, protection, compliance, distribution, storage, and destruction of personnel records.

The File Manager will be responsible for categorizing and maintaining a listing of records maintained and the location (i.e. by wall unit and shelf row number).
