Never sign HR documents for employees

As part of his age-bias lawsuit, James Halloran claimed that his employer's HR director signed Halloran's signature to the bottom of a negative performance review. At trial, the company admitted to the forgery, which led to Halloran winning more than $2 million in damages. The lesson: Never sign or initial documents for employees. Performance reviews and warnings don't need an employee's signature to be valid. If the employee won't sign, instruct managers to make a handwritten note on the document saying the employee refused. (Halloran v. Millington North America, No. CV016578, San Joaquin County, CA)
