This is the original problem from an employee...
I work for a firm and I had a client in to fill out a release form, she signed one part, but I forgot to have her sign the second part, which she would have signed with no problem. However, I didn't notice it wasn't signed until after she had left. I signed her name technically without permission, but I just didn't want to call her and make her come back to the office. IS it illegal to sign someone's name if they intended on doing it anyway? I am not gaining anything from it? Please advise.

You arent gaining anything from it? Are you sure? I bet with only a few questions, I could show that your firm is gaining, and that you are an employee of the firm.

Don't sign someone else's name to something. It is a small embarrassment to have someone come back, or give you maybe verbal permission over the phone to sign for them. Maybe they can fax in permission with a signature. I am not a layer. (IANAL)

Signing someones name on a document, especially a legal one, is forgery, regardless of the intention.
