Many Employers including CenturyLink now charge a fee to verify your employment?
If you leave the company and find you need employment verification for a new job or for any other reason, you will be charged for this verification. You may be able to avoid this if you have copies of your personnel file.
Your Personnel file - Your manager knows what is in your file, do you?
Article 25 Page 93
You have the right to review your personnel file on at least an annual basis, and be provided a copy of your personnel file upon request, but not more often than once in twelve months. You also have the right to put your own written statement or clarification regarding items that are placed in your file.
We suggest that you make a habit of initialing every document that you have viewed in order to insure you know if anything is placed in your file without your knowledge.
