This system of records currently covers both records concerning disciplinary actions, grievances and the like, as well as retirement records. We are changing the retention period for retirement records to make it clear that CPSC will keep only copies of the records for two years after the employee retires and send the originals to the Office of Personnel Management. We are also changing the retention period for the disciplinary records to seven years after a case is closed to be consistent with the National Archives and Records Administration's General Records Schedule 1, section 30, “Administrative Grievance, Disciplinary, and Adverse Action Files”.

Amend the retention section of CPSC-15 to read as follows:

CPSC-15, Employee Relations Files


(1) For documents relating to disciplinary actions, complaints, grievances, and potential adverse actions, destroy 7 years after case is closed.

(2) For retirement records, transfer the records to the Office of Personnel Managment after the employee retires, and retain copies for two years.
