Electronic Document Retention Policies - Why You May Need One
by Michael Fox
Thanks to Sabrina at be Spacific for this link to an article by Oregon based forensic consultant Paul French, Electronic Document Retention Policies. From an employment lawyer's perspective, I shudder to think at what often can be found in e-mail, a way too often a way of recording one's ill-formed and sometimes uninformed thoughts. Although it can work both ways, plaintiffs use e-mail too. Still hiding one's head in the sand and hoping you won't be asked to produce electronic documents in the future seems somewhat unrealistic. And if you can't, French talks about the potential perils.
