Thanks for your patience. Having a written warning at work is not that serious of a matter. I understand that you agree with the reasons for the warning and that you think appealing is pointless, which is fine. In terms of the way it may affect your future employment you have to think how this warning may become known to a future employer. First of all there is no central database or point for employers to refer to in order to find out what an employee’s disciplinary record is like. So they will be relying solely on disclosure by their previous employer or the employee themselves. An employer will not automatically disclose previous disciplinary warnings and that may usually only happen if they are asked directly to do so in a reference request. Also without being asked directly, an employer should not disclose warning which are no longer considered ‘live’. A warning is usually only valid for a specified period of time, such as 6 or 12 months and after that it should no longer be considered or included in a reference, unless specifically asked whether there were ever any warnings issued against the employee. So it is certainly not as bad as you may think it is and over time the potential issues with this warning will diminish and even disappear.
