How to handle a reprimand letter?

I received a letter of reprimand recently and news of an interview at another agency. I know the hiring manager and she’s well-aware of my current toxic work environment. I have years of excellent to highly-successful appraisals and I’m wondering if anyone out there has dealt with a similar situation. Do you disclose or just move ahead if you were to be hired? Advice welcomed. Thanks

A letter of reprimand is a temporary document and it can be removed from your Official Personnel File (OPF) after 1 year. And it is for conduct not performance. If you are asked about it, you should not lie. But i would not bring it up, either. You don't have an offer yet--only an interview. If it looks serious, then you may want to reach back to the hiring manager after the interview to give them a heads up (since it will come up in a reference check). And of course, do not go "off" about your supervisor regardless.

my experience, not to say was successful, but looking back, I wish I had not signed the letter, and wrote a response/defense of the situation to add to the letter explaining my side, and not sign in disagreement. If it happens again, (to me it did), now it seems I'm the problem, but no one will hear my side, its not part of the record. I really had given up--too frustrated and hurt to respond with logic and a clear head and description of the facts that led to the write up. it was so toxic--and they were definitely retaliating for me pointing out problems--which management did not like. As far as the other place, don't hide anything, but don't volunteer anything about it either, stress your quality ratings.
