How long, legally, can a final written warning be in effect?

Chicago, IL |

My friend has been put on a "perpetual" final written warning. Is there no way for him to redeem himself? No matter how long he works for the employer from this point on?

  1. A final written warning means just that. One more strike and he is out. It is totally up to the discretion of the boss whether, after time, some leniency is built back into the process.
