Frequently asked questions (FAQs) about the Digital Personnel File

Fol­ders are crea­ted in d.velop do­cu­ments (form­er­ly d.3ecm) via a fol­der sche­me for do­cu­ments with the same at­tri­bu­te values.

The ad­mi­nis­tra­ti­on de­ter­mi­nes which em­ployees are al­lo­wed to view and/or edit per­son­nel do­cu­ments. Mo­reo­ver, the ‘Per­son­nel’ sec­tion is only dis­play­ed for aut­ho­ri­zed users via an ac­ti­vi­ty profile.

The em­ploy­er can de­ci­de whe­ther to keep a tra­di­tio­nal pa­per file or a more mo­dern di­gi­tal per­son­nel file. The le­gis­la­tor has not re­gu­la­ted this and does not di­stin­gu­ish bet­ween the two ty­pes. The only im­portant thing is that the file is pro­tec­ted from ac­cess by un­aut­ho­ri­zed third par­ties and that ac­cess is only gran­ted to a li­mi­t­ed group of peo­p­le. In the case of clas­sic pa­per fil­ing, this can be done by lo­cking them in se­pa­ra­te rooms or in ca­bi­nets or safes. Only the re­spon­si­ble per­sons may then have a key. With di­gi­tal files, the same ef­fect can be achie­ved by using va­rious tech­ni­cal de­vices and spe­cial soft­ware. For ex­am­p­le, it is pos­si­ble to im­ple­ment pass­word pro­tec­tion. The le­gal re­qui­re­ments can be met in a va­rie­ty of ways. For ex­am­p­le, it is ea­sier to make only cer­tain parts of a file vi­si­ble and thus pro­tect the em­ployee in the best pos­si­ble way. This is more dif­fi­cult with pa­per files. From a pu­rely le­gal per­spec­ti­ve, ho­we­ver, the same re­qui­re­ments ap­p­ly to pa­per files as to di­gi­tal per­son­nel files.

In prin­ci­ple, pa­per do­cu­ments can be de­s­troy­ed as soon as they have been scan­ned. This is one of the gre­at ad­van­ta­ges of a per­son­nel file: you save space and re­sour­ces sin­ce not all do­cu­ments have to be kept in pa­per form. Ho­we­ver, it is ad­vi­sa­ble to keep some do­cu­ments. This is al­ways the case when ori­gi­nal do­cu­ments with si­gna­tures are in­vol­ved, such as an em­ploy­ment con­tract. The pre­sence of the ori­gi­nal can be par­ti­cu­lar­ly ad­van­ta­ge­ous in court pro­cee­dings. At the same time, di­gi­tiza­ti­on of­fers pro­tec­tion in case the ori­gi­nal is lost. Other do­cu­ments may be de­s­troy­ed wi­t­hout any pro­blems. Ho­we­ver, the­re are also cer­tain points that need to be con­side­red. Sin­ce most do­cu­ments will con­tain per­so­nal data, it is not suf­fi­ci­ent to throw them into a pa­per con­tai­ner. Here, too, care must be ta­ken to en­su­re that no un­aut­ho­ri­zed per­sons can gain ac­cess to it. In prac­ti­ce, this can be en­su­red by shred­ding. A spe­cial do­cu­ment shred­der is re­qui­red for this pur­po­se. When buy­ing the ma­chi­ne, you need to make sure that the pa­per is cut into very small par­tic­les. Only when the­re are no more cross-re­fe­ren­ces to the do­cu­ments can the con­fi­den­ti­al do­cu­ments be safe­ly pla­ced in the trash with the others and dis­po­sed of.

The per­son­nel ma­nage­ment in the Di­gi­tal Life Sci­en­ces cli­ent sup­ports the boo­king of per­son­nel do­cu­ments. The pro­per­ties (at­tri­bu­tes) for the do­cu­ments are re­cor­ded in the ar­chi­ve and a bar­code la­bel can be prin­ted op­tio­nal­ly. Once the do­cu­ment is available, it is as­si­gned to the data re­cord via the bar­code or the import.

The per­son­nel ma­nage­ment sup­port the bar­code ty­pes ‘PDF417’, ‘Barcode128’ and ‘Barcode39’. The bar­code type can be set ac­cor­ding to cus­to­mer requirements.

Em­ploy­ers have a gre­at deal of la­ti­tu­de in ma­na­ging their per­son­nel files, as the­re is no le­gal re­qui­re­ment to do so. You can choo­se to keep tra­di­tio­nal pa­per files, but you can also di­gi­ti­ze them or opt for both. If not all pa­per do­cu­ments have been scan­ned, re­fe­rence must be made to the other part of the file in each case. This is the only way to en­su­re that em­ployees have the right to in­spect what is stored whe­re and in what form. As long as this no­ti­ce is pre­sent, the pre­vious pa­per files do not have to be scan­ned eit­her, so the file can sim­ply be con­tin­ued di­gi­tal­ly. Ho­we­ver, for cla­ri­ty and also to fa­ci­li­ta­te the employee’s right of in­spec­tion, a full scan is re­com­men­ded. From a le­gal per­spec­ti­ve, it is im­portant that both ty­pes of sto­rage take into ac­count data pro­tec­tion re­gu­la­ti­ons with re­gard to the per­so­nal data they con­tain. For ex­am­p­le, both ty­pes should be se­cu­red so that only aut­ho­ri­zed peo­p­le can ac­cess them. Ho­we­ver, if data pro­tec­tion re­gu­la­ti­ons are com­pli­ed with in all ca­ses, the files can be kept in both pa­per and di­gi­tal form.

Now, of cour­se, the­re are a va­rie­ty of soft­ware so­lu­ti­ons for main­tai­ning di­gi­tal per­son­nel files. In the end, the so­lu­ti­ons all do the same thing for the most part, but the dif­fe­rence — as is so of­ten the case — is in the de­tails. Whe­ther the so­lu­ti­on of Di­gi­tal Life Sci­en­ces is sui­ta­ble for your com­pa­ny, our ex­perts from the sa­les de­part­ment will gl­ad­ly find out tog­e­ther with you in a con­ver­sa­ti­on. Upon re­quest, we will also be hap­py to pre­sent our so­lu­ti­on in de­tail to you and your HR staff.
