If they're storing that kind of junk in an employee's file

We could probably eliminate five jobs and not need a forklift to pick up an employee's file.

I can only speak from my past experience, but we had firm guidelines of what went in a service record book and what didn't go in a service record book. I can assure you that my current employer, a large, multi-national corporation, has an even tighter policy.

Unless something permanently impacts an employee or the county, it doesn't belong in his or her permanent file. This was evidently a request for county work history, remarkably similar to any employment verification request. Why would that be filed in his permanent record? Will it be important a year from now? Two years? Five years?

It's a moot point, anyway. As I pointed out in two previous posts, how do we know it was a county employee, and not an ESC employee, a bank employee, or one of his obviously disenchanted female friends?
