A Canadian HR Reporter: Special Report

HR Manager's Guide to Employment Files and Information Management: Legislation and Best Practices is a unique book written for HR practitioners and others who deal with employee information of all kinds, including employee files – either electronically or in paper format – and other records, including emails, spreadsheets, and other documentation. It deals with legal and best practice requirements relating to the management of all types of employee information throughout the employment lifecycle from recruitment through to termination. The book includes information on all Canadian jurisdictions. While it is not just about privacy, records retention or human resources information systems (HRIS), it does cover aspects of all three areas.

Lyndsay Wasser, co-chair of the privacy group at McMillan LLP, sat down with Canadian HR Reporter to discuss pitfalls and benefits of using social media to conduct background checks during the recruitment process. Liz Foster reports
