Do Elmhurst Employees Have Rights to Access Their Personnel Files?

In this article, our Elmhurst employment attorneys discuss employees' right to review their own personnel records. Employees can access their personnel file twice a year and for up to a year after they are terminated. As long as they pay the copying fee, they are also allowed to copy their employer's personnel records.

However, Illinois law does not require employers to create any personnel files. Employers are only allowed to review personnel filesif they already exist. Any documents that the employer intends to be used to support termination must be kept in an employee's personnel file, or they become inadmissible in court as evidence.
