Employees Have the Right To Receive a Copy Of Their Personnel File and Records

Effective January 1, 2013, California law provides that current and former employees (or a representative) 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. Labor Code Section 1198.5.

Inspections must be allowed at reasonable times and intervals, but not later than 30 calendar days from the date the employer receives a written request.
