PTO Requests – Records Retention

How long are you required to maintain PTO request forms from a records retention standpoint?

The federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires covered employers to maintain certain records for non-exempt employees. Payroll records must be retained for at least three years. Records on which wage computations are based should be retained for two years, i.e., time cards and piece work tickets, wage rate tables, work and time schedules, and records of additions to or deductions from wages.

Moreover, it’s common practice to retain the files, which often include PTO request forms, of all active employees while they’re still working for the company and the files of all former employees for at least seven years after the date of separation.
