Question: Must affirmative action questionnaires contain the signature of the job applicant or employee?

Answer: Affirmative action forms are voluntary and self-identity is optional. Providing a signature line is a good practice for ease in administration as it permits the employee to self-identify and allows the compliance officer to align selections on the form with specific employees. However, the signature line is not a mandate and is purely optional. The form can, but does not need to contain such a field.
