Violating a Court’s Document Retention Notice can have harsh consequences!
A litigation hold is a written directive advising custodians of certain information to preserve potentially relevant evidence in anticipation of future litigation. So, why is this your problem? Two reasons: first, you’re the custodian of corporate information, we all are. And second, if you fail to preserve these electronic or paper records, if you destroy relevant evidence after the date of the litigation hold, your company could be subjected to massive sanctions, sanctions that could change the outcome of an expensive and dangerous lawsuit, a lawsuit that could destroy your business unit or company. You don’t want to be the person who caused those sanctions. This could ruin your hard-earned reputation and derail your career. To help you avoid this, we’ve created a short, engaging program on litigation hold. Just what you need to know, nothing more.
