Security Checks/Driver’s Abstract’s, Etc for Work
June 1, 2007 7:01pm CST
If your employer requires you to get a driver's abstract, criminal record check or security check and you have to pay to have them done through the authority in your area that supplies them, should your employer pay for the check or at least reimburse you the cost of the check? Every other job I've ever had in the past either had their own source to have security checks done, or reimbursed you the cost once you submitted the security check showing you had no criminal record, but my current job doesn't even reimburse you the $30 cost to get it done. $30 is a week's worth of food for me, and is small fries to a company this size, but evidently they’ve never reimbursed for it. It's just required to keep the job. What do you think?

I think if the company requires it. Than the company should reimburse you once you are hired in. I don't feel anyone should have to pay any money out in order to get or hold a job. I also think if their policy is different. Than they should state the money used for the security checks is not reimbursed. If people knows up front , than it is totally up tot he individual as they will be well informed.
