What is the generally accepted practice on whether or not you obtain explicit permission from your employer to permit you to keep a copy of your work for use in your portfolio?

I have *heard* that employers automatically understand and assume that writers will always be able to put aside writing samples for portfolio purposes--without explicit permission.

In practice, do any of you always *formally* make requests for copies of your own work? Or do you just go ahead and retain your own copies? Afterall, the work you produce belongs to the party who has paid for it, be it your employer or your employer's customer, right?
