Unless it goes beyond the normal every day stuff. As in example, you would be asked to sign a W9 form, application for employment, Drug screening test, background check. With your job, as long as it has something to do with your normal every day job, as in signing for a package and you are the receptionist, or you are asked to sign a contract while you are the one making the deal. Then yes you are obligated to sign. But if you are just the cleaning person and you are asked to sign for something that you had no action in, then this should be brought up with your supervisor and or the next level up on the chain. If at any time you are asked to sing something that does make you feel uncomfortable, then it is your right to refuse. Except if it falls into the categories I mentioned above.

AnswerYou don't HAVE to sign anything. But, be aware that if you refuse to sign certain legal documents, like an I-9 or certain forms that are important to the employer (credit check, drug testing, uniforms issued) they can fire you. So no, you don't HAVE to sign. And they don't HAVE to employ you. Answer

If you're referring to a write-up, yes. You have to acknowledge the discipline provided. Even if you don't agree. What you can do in your defense, though, if you don't agree is include a comment. State as clearly as possible what your standpoint is in your disagreement. Be respectful and polite, otherwise you will be made to look as insubordinate which is what your employer can use if it's that he/she is trying to get you fired. If need be, you can later prove your point with your boss contradicting a company's policy if that's the case, for example. This can actually work in your defense being that the write-up is documenting your boss's unsubstantiated grounds for writing you up.

If an employer asks an employee if that employer can count on him or her, the answer should be yes. An employee must be reliable in order to benefit the employer.

Technically an employer can't force you to sign anything. They generally can, however, opt to stop employing you (or not employ you in the first place) if you don't.

No one anywhere can require you to sign anything. Doing so would invalidate your signature. It must be voluntary.

That depends on whether you are an employee or a manufactured product. If you are an employee, then your employer can't force you to do anything that you don't want to do, simply because you're an employee, not a slave. Whenever your employer asks you to do anything, you always have three choices for your resonse: 1). Comply 2). Negotiate 3). Walk

No, they cannot force you to sign anything. However, employers often make employment contingent on signing certain documents, such as a non-compete agreement. If you refuse to sign, you could be fired or not hired.

its where you can sign on for a bonus, and your employer can either elect you to have the bonus, or he can decline what you have to say.

It means a future employer. Anything that is prospective is in the future.

The employer does not need the employee to APPROVE or even acknowledge the discipline for the employer to unilaterally impose it. Refuse to sign and you are still disciplined.

Truthfully. To do anything else is illegal and if an employer ever discovered that you had lied on a job application, you could be fired.

If you are asked for a performance review from a past employer then you should reach out to your former manager. If you can't get a performance review, then you should use the manager as a reference.

An employer can ask an employee if they are retiring as long as it is not done in a way that does not discriminate. It is not legal for an employer to tell an employee to resign because of his age. Also, an employee does not have to answer if his boss asks if he is retiring.
