    Apostrophe Usage

    In the sentence:

    "The following are items for the employee's records:"

    Is there suppose to be an apostrophe in employee's if it is singular?

    Re: Apostrophe Usage

    There must be an apostrophe to show that the records relate to the specific employee.

    It it was more than one employee, you still need the apostrophe, following the plural "s": "the employees' records"
