Do employees have to sign written warnings?


It is always a good idea to ask employees to sign any written warning that will go into their personnel file. Since many employees take exception to being reprimanded, you may wish to emphasize that a signature is not an admission of wrongdoing but rather an acknowledgement that the employee has received the warning. If an employee refuses to sign a written warning, make a note of the fact on the warning and have another manager witness the employee’s refusal to sign and file the warning as usual.
