Alaska Law on Employee Access to Personnel Records

In Alaska, employees have the right to view and copy their personnel files.

State law determines whether -- and under what circumstances -- employees have a right to look at their personnel files. In Alaska, employees have a statutory right to see their personnel records. 

Employees and former employees in Alaska have a right to review their personnel records during regular business hours under reasonable rules. They also have a right to copy their peronnel files. If the employer requests, the employee must pay the copying costs. 

All Alaska employers must comply with this law.
