Although the Personnel Files Act limits inspection rights to "any person currently employed", it does not prohibit an individual from obtaining access when the individual makes a request contemporaneously with termination or within a reasonable time immediately following termination. Beitman v. Dept of Labor and Industry, 675 A.2d 1300 (Pa. Cmwlth 1996).  Remember that disciplinary records that may form a basis for defense of a legal claim should be included in the personnel file unless prepared in anticipation of litigation.  If documents are not in the personnel file when inspected by a former employee, an argument can be made that they were fabricated after the fact.
