Customer Question
My boss said here...

My boss said here just sign this, she put the paper infant of me while I was chatting , I signed it and then went home and thought - what was that about,

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you discussed this with a manager or HR? Or with a lawyer?

No, I am an aid with autistic students at a middle school. I don't usually need to sign things. She was really friendly and I was distracted. Now I am worried and suspicious.

Lawyer's Assistant: Are you an "at will" employee? Do you belong to a union?

I pay union dues out of my pay check but I think I probably need to check to see if I am actually a member.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Is there a charge?

Lawyer's Assistant: The Expert's answer will cost $10 to $100, depending on the issue type and time to respond. You'll see the exact amount on the next page and can decide then. It's way less expensive than face-to-face would cost. And you're covered by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.

I am embarrassed that I did such a foolish thing. Signing without reading a document, when I am never asked to sign things. I should have been more attentive at the time. I am just an aid and not well paid, but have worked at my school and in this program for 10 years.

Did you still need assistance? If so, I can't tell you whether or not you have the right to change your mind on the signature unless I know what it is you signed.
