Employee Retention of C. H. Robinson Worldwide - April 6th, 2011

Employee Retention of C. H. Robinson Worldwide : C.H. Robinson Worldwide, Inc. (NASDAQ: CHRW) is a Fortune 500 third-party logistics provider which provides domestic and international freight transportation and logistics services.
Charles Robinson (born in New York City) incorporated C.H. Robinson Company in 1905 in the city of Grand Forks, North Dakota, as a produce and general merchandise brokerage firm. After several years, Robinson expanded their business to address the complex problem of how to transport and distribute perishable products by horse and buggy before they spoil.
In 1968, the company entered the regulated trucking business with a contract carrier known as Meat Packers Express, and later created ROBCO Transportation as an irregular route carrier. Robinson became wholly owned by its employees in 1976. In 1978, The Fresh1 brand was introduced for Robinson’s produce brokerage business. Robinson bought its first IBM mainframe in 1979, which began an era of centrally supported technology, electronics communications and information sharing.
The passage of the Motor Carrier Act of 1980 deregulated transportation, allowing C.H. Robinson to act as a freight brokerage for any type of product. In 1986, ROBCO was divested and Robinson became a completely non-asset based logistics provider. The company went public on October 16, 1997, as C.H. Robinson Worldwide (NASDAQ: CHRW).
On March 4, 2010, Fortune magazine named C. H. Robinson as the most admired transportation, trucking, and logistics company in the world.

C.H. Robinson’s Legal Department has the authority to establish, maintain, and implement a comprehensive Records Retention Schedule, including updates and modifications thereto. It also has the authority to approve uniform practices, procedures, and guidelines for the management, maintenance, and destruction of documents. Adherence to the Records Retention Schedule is intended to assure that the following objectives are met:
+ All records necessary for business reasons will be retained for a period of time that will reasonably assure their availability when needed.
+ All records required to be developed and retained to document or support the company’s compliance with applicable federal, state, and local laws and regulations will be developed and retained for the required periods.
+ All records not necessary for legal or business purposes will be destroyed to reduce the high cost of space, equipment, and personnel necessary to store, organize, and handle the vast number of records when retention is no longer required.
+ Privacy and security of records will be protected.
+ Destruction of records will take place in compliance with standard procedures, in order to avoid any inference that any record was destroyed in anticipation of a specific problem.
+ All destruction procedures will be suspended when a record or group of records are placed on legal hold, which is described below.
A current version of C.H. Robinson’s Records Retention Schedule is available on the Legal Department’s WorkNet portal.
The Records Retention Schedule controls the maintenance, storage and destruction of all Company records. As a general rule, a record is any compilation of information, regardless of its physical characteristics, which was created or received by C.H. Robinson and which should be preserved because of its business or evidentiary value. The majority of the records covered bythe Records Retention Schedule are paper documents (or electronic images of paper documents) which have been created or received by C.H. Robinson. However, records may also be in the form of computer tapes and discs, microfilm, video and other electronic mediums. The Records Retention Schedule applies to all records maintained by C.H. Robinson regardless of the format in which they are maintained.

The Records Management and Retention Policy has been developed to provide all employees of C.H. Robinson with a comprehensive set of guidelines for the management, handling and disposition of company documents and information, including financial records.
Applicable Laws and Regulations
United States law, including the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (“FCPA”), requires that C.H. Robinson’s financial records accurately reflect all transactions, including any payment of money, transfer of property or furnishing of services. These transactions must be recorded
accurately regardless of whether the transactions are legal at the place where the transaction occurs.
The FCPA establishes the following requirements with regard to record-keeping and communications. All employees are responsible to comply with the following requirements:

+ All disbursements of funds and all receipts must be properly, accurately and promptly recorded.
