In California, do I have the right to see my personnel file from my current or former employer?

Q & A Main Article 2

Yes, you have the right to review your personnel files and make copies of documents you've signed in California. If you're a California state or federal employee, your personnel file can only be disclosed under limited circumstances as it is covered under the California Information Practices Act (state employee) or the federal Privacy Act of 1974 (federal employee).
