Can I keep my employees' passport if they ask me to do so?

If your employee specifically asks you to keep their passport, we strongly advise you not to keep the passport.

A better option is to provide your employees with other methods to keep their passport in a secure manner, e.g. secure lockers.

If you agree to keep the passport, you must return the passport to the employee when asked. Otherwise, you may face severe penalties.
