(820 ILCS 40/6)
(from Ch. 48, par. 2006)
Personnel Record Correction.
If the employee disagrees with
any information contained in the personnel record, a removal or correction
of that information may be mutually agreed upon by the employer and the
employee. If an agreement cannot be reached, the employee may submit a written
statement explaining the employee's position. The employer shall attach
the employee's statement to the disputed portion of the personnel record.
The employee's statement shall be included whenever that disputed portion
of the personnel record is released to a third party as long as the disputed
record is a part of the file. The inclusion of any written statement
attached in the record without further comment or action by the employer,
shall not imply or create any presumption of employer agreement with its
contents. If either the employer or the employee knowingly
places in the personnel record information which is false, the employer
or employee, whichever is appropriate, shall have remedy through legal action
to have that information expunged.
