Can i get access to my personnel files from work?
I have just finished my job after working 2 weeks notice but as we left on bad terms my old employer (Arla Foods PLC) will not release my fork lift lisences or any certificates for courses that i attended (e.g. manual handling, fire safety, public speaking) whitch i took while with this employer. is there any way of getting them? the only other option i have is to pay for a re-test (about £260) for my flt license and then pay for the other courses.
