I recently applied for a schengen visa, and when i got my passport back , i found a paper stapled at the back as a warning that the visa is only for vacation purposes and not work or other things. Now i already know that the embassy has the right to staple on pages of the passport , but i don't understand why they did so on the back cover of the passport. Is it even legal to do so ?

I don't know about the legality of it, but if your passport is one of those that works with the automatic gates, then stapling through one of the stiffer parts of your passport runs the risk of damaging the RFID antenna inside. You might want to check with your passport issuing authority.
