AS AN EMPLOYEE, AM I ENTITLED TO SEE EVERYTHING IN MY PERSONNEL FILE?

As an Employee, Am I Entitled to See Everything in my Personnel File

According to California Labor law, no, you do not have the right to inspect everything in your personnel file.

California law provides that current and former employees (or a representative of the current and former employee) have the right to inspect and receive a copy of the personnel files and records that relate to the employee’s performance or to any grievance concerning the employee.

However, this rule does not apply to:

– Records relating to the investigation of a possible criminal offense
– Letters of reference
– Ratings, reports, or records that were:
a. Obtained prior to your employment,
b. Prepared by identifiable examination committee members, or
c. Obtained in connection with a promotional examination.
