State Personnel Records
The State Personnel Records group is responsible for maintaining certain documents within an employee file for State agencies and completing Verifications of Employment.
Verification of Employment:
State Personnel Records can only verify the following:
o Date of Hire
o Current Classification
o Active or Inactive Status
o Full-Time or Part-Time Status
o Rate of pay
Verifications needing income information beyond rate of pay cannot be completed by HRD and will need to be sent to the Human Resources Office at the Agency where the Employee is currently employed. Agency contact information is located at http://ohio.gov/agencies/
DAS Records Requirements:
The following items are required to be maintained by HRD:
· ePARs and attachments (HRD automatically receives from OAKS)
o HRD does not maintain ePARs in the Discipline ePAR category
· Paper Personnel Actions (PAs) and attachments
· Position Descriptions (PDs)
o Paper PAs & PDs should emailed to email@example.com
· Agencies are instructed to adopt their own records retention schedules in accordance to ORC requirements. Agencies can work with DAS General Services State Records Management Program. http://das.ohio.gov/Portals/0/DASDivisions/DirectorsOffice/pdf/policies/recordsandprinting/RM-01.pdf
· All confidential and medical records should be kept separate from personnel files.
