I hadn't thought about this before. Sound advice, just thought I'd pass it along.


A word of advice when it comes to signing legal documents in the New Year. The East Millinocket Police Department in Maine posted on their Facebook page a word of caution when it comes to abbreviating 2020.

If you sign a document and only put 20 as the year, someone could modify it to include a different year.

According to the department, by writing out 2020 it could potentially save you some trouble down the road.


For example, if you date a document 3/3/20, it could be modified by only adding two more digits (i.e. 3/3/2016, 3/3/2018, etc.).

What if I take an example of paperwork in which someone has used 06/01/20 and doctor it to state “06/02/2018” and then use that example as a learning tool.... I’ll get dismissed for gross misconduct?

No. That won’t happen. You’re talking absolute nonsense. That doesn’t even come close to gross misconduct.
