Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about warning expiration:
How long do workplace warnings last? Is there a period where they stay in your file and then get discarded or do they stay forever?

Dear Worried About Warnings:
We are not an HR site, so we can’t claim to have complete knowledge about these issues, but I will at least respond from a logical and reasonable viewpoint.In the United States or most other countries, there are no laws or regulations related to retaining or purging written warnings about behavior or performance at work. If you work in an organization that has a union, they may have a contract agreement about it, but you would probably know that.
