What Is The Open Personnel Records Law?

Chapter 103.13 Provides that a past or present employee has the right to view and copy their personnel records at least two times each calendar year. If an employee wishes to have a copy of the records, the employer may charge a reasonable fee for providing such copies, which may not exceed the actual cost of reproduction. The employer may ask that an employee make these requests in writing. The employer then has seven (7) working days to provide the employee with an opportunity to inspect the documents. If an employee is involved in a current grievance against an employer, the employee may have his or her union representative, or any other designated person, inspect those records that may have a bearing on the resolution of the grievance.
