Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors:
Do written reprimands in HR files affect an employee’s future career opportunities outside of the company who issued the reprimand?

Dear More than Just Wondering:
Our site answers communication-related workplace questions, with the exception of legal and medical. It is best that you send this kind of question to a Human Relations site or if really concerned that you seek the counsel of an attorney. I think as a general rule, employers are cautious about sending negative information about a former employee or one still employed who is searching for another place of work.
