A company is under no obligation to provide anyone, including the affected employee,  with a copy of any write-ups, disciplinary notes, etc. That is unless there exists an employment contract or union agreement to the contrary. The truth is that, absent actionable discrimination, an employer can set the conditions of work much as it sees fit. This inlcude when or even whether to let an employee/ex-employee see a copy of their write-ops. The fact is that an employee can be terminated for any reason or no reason at all, with or without notice.
