The next section could be for benefits enrollment and participation information. The third section could be reserved for performance evaluations and disciplinary actions. The fourth section might be the right place to store any FMLA or WC paperwork.
Construction project files and legal files could have documents segregated in a similar manner based on date, type, or other criteria.
