Project Underwritten by ARMA International Educational Foundation and ARMA Metro NYC Chapter


This report is a companion to a previously published Research Report completed in 2019 (Retention of Accounting Records: A Global Survey of Laws and Regulation).  This newly published report identifies and summarizes legal and regulatory requirements for content, storage, retention, and use of records that contain information about employees, a category of recorded information that is created and maintained by virtually all businesses, government agencies, and not-for-profit organizations. The report is intended for records managers, information governance specialists, human resource professionals, compliance officers, attorneys, risk managers, and others who develop policies and procedures for creation, storage, retention, use, and disclosure of personnel records in specific countries where such records are created or maintained.
