‍​Employees are also entitled to a obtain a copy of their Employer's personnel records.  However, the employer is permitted to charge a fee for copying the records, which must be limited to the actual cost of producing the copy.  

‍You should note that the Act does not require an employer to create  any personnel records, so the employee is only required to review personnel records to the extent that the employer has created them.  However, any documents that the employer intends to use to support termination or discipline must be maintained in the employee's personnel file, or they will be inadmissible by the employer as evidence. ​

What to Expect From a Consultation

The purpose of a free consultation is to determine whether our firm is a good fit for your legal needs. Although we often discuss expected results and costs, our attorneys do not give legal advice unless and until you choose to retain us. Although most consultations are complimentary, some may carry a charge depending on the type of matter and meeting location.
