    Please help. How can I get copies of my previous fixed term contracts? I have been in touch with capita and had no response. Will my school have copies and can I request my own copies?

    Why not phone your previous school's HR people? They may retain copies or may have a data destruction policy - they will be able to tell you.

    Of course you can request them - you are entitled to ask for just about anything. I can't say if the school still has them - I suppose they should keep a record of when people work there in case a reference request is made, but that might not mean keeping the contracts. But there is nothing we can tell you that the schools can't. So take @Skeoch's advice above.

    The HR department of the respective schools should have a record of employee contracts even if the employee has left, they should be archived.

    I did a quick search, and found the suggestion that employment contracts etc should be kept for between three and six years. I don't think there is a law about it.

    Have you asked, @Beckstar9978? If so, how did it go?

    We had the policy of keeping employment records for six years then destroying them. Otherwise you are keeping personal information that you are no longer entitled to. I’m not sure if this was an LA recommendation or data legislation.
