Default Right to access own personnel (employee) file?

I live in Michigan, do I have the right to examine my employee file? I believe there to be evidence of discrimination and or bias inside my file.
I have asked to review my file and was denied access.

Default Re: Right to access own personnel (employee) file?

I wish to inform you that an employer cannot refuse access to file. Under Michigan law, an employee is allowed to view her personnel file. Employees are also allowed to make photocopies of anything in the file for their personal records. Further if there is a lawsuit then file can also be demanded in discovery of document stage of the lawsuit.
