I wrote a letter within 2 days of being let go from my job asking them to tell me in writing the reason for my termination. I also requested any and all records that they held on me in my personell files. How much time do they get to responds?
Hello and welcome,

Yes, the employer must typically provide you with copies or the right to access your personnel files within 7 days of receiving your request if the files are stored in the state, or 14 days if stored outside of the state pursuant to MN law.
