Thank you for contacting Just Answer. I look forward to assisting you.
There can sometimes be a delay of an hour or more in between my answers because I may be researching the answer to your question, helping other customers, or taking a break. If we're writing late in the evening, I may need to get some sleep and resume helping you the following morning.
Sometimes I'm unable to read your entire question until AFTER I write back to you. So, if I suggest something you already tried, it's because I couldn't see part of your original question. Just write back to me and let me know.
Answer: Labor Code 432 states:
" If an employee or applicant signs any instrument relating to
the obtaining or holding of employment, he shall be given a copy of
the instrument upon request."
It isn't crystal clear how long such applications must be kept. Four years should be more than sufficient, since most employment lawsuits must be brought within three years.
I'm happy to answer follow-up questions. If you have none, please

Ask for me by name next time you visit JustAnswer.com. I'll remember you!
