  • Are there any employee rights regarding a review? California

    Hello. I have been at my place of work for over two years and have asked for a review (as in, a performance review) numerous times. Am I entitled to a review? What can I do if the boss fails to comply? Thanks!

    There is no federal law which mandates a review. I am unfamiliar with CA so will let another poster address it for the state level.

      A review isn't required unless you would have a binding employment contract or CBA requiring one after a certain period of time.
      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

        There is no state where performance reviews are required by law.
        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.

 carefu what you ask for, just because you think you're a model may find that your employer does not!
          Not everything in America is actionable in a court of law. Please remember that attorneys are in business for profit, and they get paid regardless of whether or not you win or lose.

          I offer my knowledge and experience at no charge, I admit that I am NOT infallible, I am wrong sometimes, hopefully another responder will correct me if that is the case with the answer above, regardless, it is your responsibility to verify any and all information provided.

            I'm not sure what you hope to accomplish with a formal review. IF there are particular areas of concern, why not schedule time to talk to your boss about those in particular? Or even send an email and ask for feedback on a recent project. There are many ways to assess whether or not you are on target and performing to expectation aside from a formal review.
            I post with the full knowledge and support of my employer, though the opinions rendered are my own and not necessarily representative of their position. In other words, I'm a free agent.
