A: Your question is very difficult to understand. If you were given some kind of written warning or notice of infraction from your employer related to your job, then yes, of course, it can affect your employment. Any form of discipline received from your employer can have an adverse affect on your job. However what that affect would be is impossible for anyone here to assess. Sometimes written warnings are given simply to assist an employee in understanding their responsibilities and nothing comes from it. In other situations a written warning can be a precursor to greater discipline and even termination. To get more helpful guidance on this you are going to need to consult confidentially with an employment law attorney who can be allowed to see the document and understand more of the specific facts.

Good luck to you.
