A records retention schedule defines the period of time that records should be retained and when they should be destroyed. Various requirements based in law and university policy govern the retention of administrative records. A retention schedule is critical for promoting responsible records management, mitigating risk, and ensuring consistent compliance across UC.
The purpose of the Personnel Records Online System is to create a consolidated, complete employee file that is accessible to those who require access; reduce institutional risks related to unauthorized access to employee records; streamline the process of responding to subpoenas; and manage the retention and disposition of employee records in accordance with UC guidelines.
