    Is it legal for an employer to ask an employee to pay for a National Police check and/or other work entitlement checks on commencement of employment & every 2 years or more regularly thereafter?
    I don't mind my employers checking up on me, I have nothing to hide. I do mind however, being asked to pay $70 or more, every 2 years or more regularly if they so choose...

    1. Talk to your union.
    2. Take advice about whether or not it's deductible.
