When you get an email from your employer, say HR, saying "Fill in and sign this form and return to me" how do you deal with it?
I have worked at my current employer long enough that I do not remember how I handled this before, and it may have been when such things were less frequently dealt with by email. At this employer I have opened the PDF file in Libreoffice Draw, edited or added text boxes to fill in the form fields, copied in an image of my signature, exported as PDF and emailed the result back. My employer is fine with this, it seems to fit with how they work. However in one instance I did that with a third company form and the response I got indicated that they did not expect me to do so, and may have been upset by it.
I am currently looking for other opportunities, and it occurred to me that it is probably worth knowing how most companies expect such forms to be handled.
I live and work in the UK, and work in science if that is relevant.
