My new employer needed a background authorization printed, signed, and scanned prior to starting my employment.

I instructed my brother who has a printer at his house to print, sign, and scan the document on my behalf since I don’t have access to one and my local print centers are closed.

Should I worry at all about this from a legal/ethical standpoint? Or am I overthinking this?

And for future reference OP, your original plan constitutes fraud, even with your consent. Unless you have a power of attorney in place with your brother, he cannot sign any legal document on your behalf.

Do you have an iPhone? You can do everything on it. There’s no need to print, sign, and scan. Just sign and save the pdf.
