If I understand your question correctly, if you are making a personal injury claim the insurance company representing the party you are suing can request you employment records and personnel file. Unless you get a court order limiting the information they can get, they could get the entire file.
I think what you are saying is that you made a claim for lost wages and your insurance company wants employment records. If you sign a release then they can get your records. They need records to pay the wage loss. If you are in an actual lawsuit, then these records can be obtained thru discovery. They are relevant to the case. Best of Luck!
