Employment Lawyers Can Answer Your Employment Law Questions
Hello, my name is ***** ***** it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
Unfortunately there is no legal obligation on the employer to retain your job applications and assessments for any period of time. They may choose to do so and most employers retain these whilst you are employed by them or for a certain period of time but this is entirely at their discretion and they would not be breaking any laws if they fail to retain them.
you can ask for any personal data stored by them about you but only if there is actually anything on file, which as mentioned they do not have to do. The issue is if this is all done verbally for example, there would be no evidence or documentation they have to disclose as they only have to disclose what is stored on a filing system, such as computers or personnel files
you are welcome
