You do not own your employment file. Employees are allowed to see personal files which contain information relating to their censure or dismissal. Contact your union representative (if any) an attorney or the local legal aid society for assistance.

How do you ask your employer to acknowledge your letter of resignation?

You really don't need your employer to acknowledge it. You should keep a copy of your letter of resignation. Once your employer receives it (depending on where you work), you would normally be giving two weeks notice. At the end of the two weeks, you will receive your last paycheck and any additional monies owed you, and then you move on. If your employer does not do so, and refuses to comply with your letter of resignation, then go to Labor Relations and make a complaint. In any event, you are free to go to another job at that time.
