Under Act No. 822, and upon written request by an employee, the LWC may make available the employee’s wage and employer information, but for lending purposes, tenant screening and insurance underwriting only. This information shall be provided to the employee or his or her representative.

At the request of the employee, the LWC may allow the electronic transmission of the employee’s records, directly or through a qualified third-party vendor. Such records will be provided only on an individual inquiry basis and shall not be maintained or reported with other data. The electronic employment records which the LWC may disclose “shall be only those records which would otherwise be available to the employee who signed a written authorization for those records.”
