Thank you for the information: Reports can be taken out after 3 years , and a attached response can be written. Not sure about existing contract as I am no longer employed there. Your Question: After resignation, 6 months post, need to go back to former employer and sign off on personnel file. Contractually, I have the right to have disciplinary reports removed and can respond to any of these. What contract holds precedent, the contract year that the reports were written, or the existing contract? Response: The contract year that the reports were written controls. You cannot be held to a new and existing contract when you are no longer there—when you are not a party to the contract.
