My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: California
I was in a supervisory role at a small start-up company, employed for 1.5 years. Only had one meeting with my boss regarding a complaint of a co-worker against me over 1 year ago that was resolved. I was terminated a few weeks ago and was only given the reason that I "wasn't a good fit". After termination I was curious as to why I was let go so I requested a copy of my personnel file hoping that it might shed some clues. I was only mailed a copy of my W-2 form and original employment application and nothing else. My employer has since contested my UI claim and I'm now scheduled for a hearing. I'm now wondering are they able to present any evidence or argument that is not a part of my personnel file? What documents are considered to be a part of my file? For preparing for the hearing, am I able to request any of my emails that were sent/received on my company email account?
