Asked in Employment Discrimination and Employment Law for Nebraska

Q: Is there a way to request documents and report from my employer on why I was terminated

I know it's a higher it will state and I know the main reason of why they terminated me, but they act very weird and quiet about it and I find it odd and I want to know more?

A: If you have enough grounds to bring a cause of action against the employer for the termination, then part of your court case could include asking for records, deposing witnesses, etc. for more information as to the termination.

If you were an at-will employee and it is just curiousity, then you likely don't have the legal grounds to have a right to their in house records, even regarding you.
