By law employers must retain certain documentation relating to their employees for specific minimum periods. In general, this is 6 years, but some records have their own specific retention periods. These may be requested by the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) or other bodies during inspection. It is also recommended that employers retain other documentation relating to their employees for their own benefit. In the event of a dispute, it is important that the employer has supporting documentation.
