7.1.N. Records Retention
Records of former Stanford employees should be retained until the later of eight years following the date of termination or, if a claim is brought (e.g. grievance, lawsuit, or charge with state or federal agency), until the disposition of the claim is final. See Administrative Guide Memo 188.8.131.52.b. The records of non-employee affiliates who formerly held an academic appointment as Instructors (Affiliated) should be retained in a similar manner.
