  • California Personnel Files: Can Manager place document in file without notifiying you

    Does anyone know if it is a law that employees be told of a manager placing a derogatory note (which in my case, was unfounded) in my personnel file.

    I was terminated and now want to include liebel as what they said was potentially used by management to discredit me, but I had no knowledge of this document until after I was wrongfully terminated, and went in to view my personnel file.

    Lo and behold, here is a write up that I never knew they had placed in my file.

    Thanks for any assistance you can offer!!

    No, they do not have to show you every piece of paper they place in your personnel file.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia

      FYI, a wrongful termination means that you were termed for a reason prohibited by law, not that you were termed for something you didn't do or for an unfair reason.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

        Thank you CBG, but I don't need the definition. I am asking because this is one more thing to put in the lawsuit, if I was liebeled by management without cause.

        Thank you for your answer also Betty3.
