You should consider your own HR and all regulatory agencies requirements before discarding any employee file information. When we were last inspected by CAP, they wanted to see the files for all employees listed on our last submission, plus new additions and they wanted 2 years of data.
Normally I would say at least two years fro any paperwork, but it is always best to ask your employee document specialists, HR. There are many different requirements for employee file documentation. If there was a corrective action issue, then we are required to keep files longer. If the employee was involved with formalin, xylene or other concentration testing, then the employee records for the testing results must be kept for 20 years. There are many different needs to consider before discarding employee files and HR and sometimes Risk Management will need to be involved and make the decision on discard.
