Do I have the right to see my personnel file?

Minnesota employers are required to provide employees with access to their personnel record upon written request. A current employee is entitled to review their personnel record once every six months. A former employee may either request to review their personnel file once a year or obtain a copy of their personnel file free of charge once a year for as long as the record is maintained. (See Minnesota Statutes 181.961.)

As of July 1, 2024, all Minnesota employees may review their personnel record as maintained by their employer once every six months, upon written request to their employer, and may dispute the contents.
