Under state law known as the “Bullard-Plawecki Employee Right to Know Act”, Michigan employees have the right to review and obtain copies of their personnel file twice each year. This law also entitles employees the right to submit a written rebuttal when they disagree with information contained in their file, and to be notified when “disciplinary letters” are shared with an outside third party.

These rights are further expanded by Article XXV in the Collective Bargaining Agreement which gives access to “Post-Employment” files within 5 working days of a request.

For more information about your rights to your personnel file, check out the FAQ.
