If you make a request over the phone, we may send you a confirmation letter or email to ensure your request was conveyed correctly to the CalHR staff assigned to respond.
Records are available for inspection during regular business hours, Monday - Friday, 9 AM - 5 PM at our office.
To make sure the records are ready for inspection, we request that you make an appointment using the contact information listed above.
In most cases, there's no fee. However, if your request requires us to duplicate a large volume of material, we may charge you for the duplication costs (typically 10 cents per page). If the request requires us to compile records, extract information from an electronic database, or undertake computer programming, we may charge you for that cost.
We will respond within 10 days. If we're unable to collect the necessary information in that timeframe, we'll still respond within 10 days explaining the delay.
