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.
