    Most states in the USA have a law called shopkeepers privilege allowing staff the legal right for things like asking for your receipt when you exit, searching bags, and even kidnapping you from the car park until police arrive. I'm sure Australia has similar laws.

    Hi Monty,
    On the basis of what you have described I do not believe Australia has laws allowing those things unless there are uncommon exceptions.
