Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and thank you for entrusting me to assist you. My name is ***** ***** I will do everything I can to answer your question.
Unfortunately, Texas has no law entitling an employee to a copy of their personnel file. This means that in order to legally compel your employer to provide a copy, you would need to file a lawsuit and then subpoena the performance review through the litigation process. The EEOC may subpoena records in the course of their own investigation, though, but it would be up to them to do this. It seems the review is relevant to assessing whether your employer's stated reason for termination was merely a fabricated pretense to conceal their true motive of age, so I can definitely see the EEOC wanting to get a hold of that.
If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary....
Very well. I wish you luck with your case and hope I was able to answer your question.
Again, please feel free to let me know if you have any further concerns. If I have answered your question, I would be very grateful for a positive rating of my service (using the stars at the top of the page) so that I may receive credit for assisting you.
