Court rules employer's grievance notes aren't discoverable under Employee Right to Know Act
Dennis Wright was a 35 year employee of the Kellogg Company. He became involved in a grievance with the company in 2005 after receiving a 34-day disciplinary suspension. He later sought a copy of the grievance notes pursuant to the Bullard-Plawecki Employee Right to Know Act (ERKA). The Court concluded that the personnel file which an employee is entitled to inspect and copy does not include an employer's notes from a grievance hearing.
