Workers compensation records
General employee records can be destroyed after seven years. However, for workers compensation, it's different. As this employment condition is subject to the relevant state or territory workers compensation legislation, the length of time required to keep such records may vary, depending on the jurisdiction.
Generally, workers compensation legislation requires an employer to keep records that relate to the calculation of premiums.
For example, the Workers Compensation Act 1987 [NSW] provides that an employer must keep correct records of all wages paid to workers employed by the employer; the trade, occupation, or calling of each worker, and other matters relating to those wages relevant to the calculation of premiums under policies of insurance, for a period of five years.
