421.6a Unemployment insurance agency; destruction or disposal of documents; admissibility of reproduction as evidence.

Sec. 6a.

The unemployment insurance agency may destroy or dispose of a document as soon as practicable after the document has been electronically captured and preserved in an information retrieval system. Electronically stored records shall be retained for the same minimum retention period as required for the original record. If an original document is destroyed or disposed of pursuant to this section, a reproduction of the document in a medium pursuant to the records reproduction act, 1992 PA 116, MCL 24.401 to 24.406, is admissible in evidence the same as the original in any proceeding before the commission, administrative law judge, or Michigan compensation appellate commission and in all courts. Information contained on printouts prepared by automatic data processing equipment is also admissible in evidence, if the original documents from which such information was obtained would have been admissible.
