I got a new job. This is the first time I am working in a big corporate environment so some things are bit new for me.
Right now, I am supposed to be studying the companies internal code of conduct and then sign that I have read and acknowledged it. However, I have objections to certain parts of it and assumptions they make.
Am I supposed to just shut up and sign the papers, that "I have read and accepted the terms and conditions" (so to speak), even if I disagree about certain things? Do other people do that?
Can I reasonably say that I have some objections, refuse to sign and keep the job (even though I am on probation)?
Will signing this have any practical effect or is that more like a binding declaration? (I might be more willing to sign latter than the former.)
EDIT: I would prefer not to specify the concrete issue. I don't believe it would help the discussion. My objections are about things that are uncommon, but not rare. I disagree with some of the underlying assumptions and philosophy.
