Personnel files are a necessity of employment, but without proper practices and important compliance knowledge, they can also be a source of trouble for an employer. Dealers can find out the ins and outs of proper personnel record-keeping from attorney Bret Yaw, an employment law expert, during a free, one-hour dealer webinar on Thursday (Feb. 5) at noon ET.

Dealer webinars are provided by the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association’s (RVDA) strategic partner KPA as part of the array of educational offerings available through the Mike Molino RV Learning Center. Register online for the webinar.

“The Legal Risk of Poorly Managed Personnel Files,” will provide real life examples of how mismanaged personnel files can lead to legal liability for your business. Many laws affect what must be contained in personnel files, requiring certain documents to be incorporated while excluding others. While some laws separate some documents from the same file, other regulations mandate how long each of these documents are kept.

This complicated file system can be hard to understand, leaving HR managers at personal legal risk if they include the wrong documentation. However, some simple guidelines can keep your dealership and HR manager out of hot water. The webinar is recommended for dealers, managers, and HR professionals.

If you cannot attend at the scheduled time or want specific employees to experience this webinar at another time, dealers can register and receive links to the materials for later viewing. Dealers interested in prior webinar topics will find them on the RV Learning Center’s webinar page.

On this page dealership personnel can access the recorded webinar and download the slides to learn more about important topics including the Family and Medical Leave Act, Nontraditional Recruitment Strategies for Dealership Hiring, and much more.
