Warning is the act and consequence of warning , a verb which alludes to reprimand, punish or warn . The concept is often used in the field of law with respect to a punishment that is applied by a disciplinary infraction and that implies registering the offense so that, if it is repeated again, a more severe penalty is applied.
These warnings may arise within the framework of a Judicial process . The court or the judge can draw attention and warn one of the parties through the communication to carry out a certain action . If you fail to comply with the requirements of the communication, a sanction is given. A judge can order, through a warning, that one of the parties of a trial go to the court to give a statement: otherwise, it will be punished.
The warning can also warn one of the parties that, if he performs a certain action, he will be punished. By example : "The defendant was forbidden to leave the country under warning".
Within the legal field, we also have to underline the existence of what is called the appellate warning procedure. With the same it is indicated, for example, that if a part of a judicial process does not violate what is ordered to make a payment to the other affected party in a specific term, it may incur a serious problem that will be associated with a concrete sanction
In the same way, in this area, the word warning is also used to refer to the sanctions and disciplinary actions that are imposed on its employees who do not comply with what is due. That is, they do not perform their functions as they should perform them.
In an educational establishment, on the other hand, the warning can serve as a warning to a student to modify his conduct if you do not want to be sanctioned with reprimands or other punishment mechanisms. The regulation of a high school, to name a case, could establish that, when a student accumulates three warnings, he receives a admonition . At ten reprimands, he is automatically expelled from school. The warnings, in this framework, are recorded in a disciplinary book.
Within the field of education, the most common warnings are established by what are the unjustified absences of students to class. In this way, those are understood as a tool to, among other things, reduce or end the so-called phenomenon of school absenteeism.
Thus, depending on the hours that have been missed in class and the number of hours of the subject in question, slight, serious or very serious warnings may be established.
Within the sports field we can underline the existence, for example, of warnings to clubs and teams for situations that occurred in their fields during a competition. We are referring, for example, to the decision to close the stadium because a bottle has been thrown at the referee.
