Employment Record Retention Laws

Summary of laws for the United States, Canada, France, Germany, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom

UKG partnered with the esteemed law firm of Morgan Lewis to create a comprehensive, easy-to-understand resource that outlines each document’s retention period requirements.
