Access to personnel files for employees working outside Texas

by on

Q. If a Texas-based company has divisions in several other states, does the Texas law allowing employers to deny employees a look at their personnel files still apply?

A. You are correct that in Texas employees do not have a right to see their personnel files. But that right does not extend beyond the state’s borders.

Actually, employees generally do not have such a right unless there is a specific state statute that requires it. (Although the Texas Legislature has considered such bills, none has ever passed. That is not true in most other states.) In order to determine whether an employee working for a non-Texas division can demand access to his or her file, you would have to look to the law of the state where the employee is located.
