The file should include basic in- formation about the person: position/title, start date, certifications, training complet- ed, and so on. Additionally, the file should contain a chronological list of key events or occurrences in the employee's tenure with your company: dates of performance reviews, promotions, achievements, posi- tive customer feedback, compliments, and the dates and details you counseled the person on some not-so-good stuff. You don't have to acknowledge the existence of such a file, but you must have one on all your employees, especially if you have started one for a particular individual. And, you must allow the employee to see their personnel file or log, if they request it. Check with your attorney for any human resource documentation requirements unique to your state. In the personnel log, be sure to record only the facts and not an interpretation of the situa- tion. For example, it's fine to make the following entry: October 10, 2018: Kerry was seen in a heated argument with Carlos. The two had to be separated.
