Asked in Identity Theft and Employment Law for Missouri

Q: Can a company require you to wear a credit card as a company ID badge?

It's a corporate card with access to both company and my personal funds. It has a picture but is not microchipped. This is the company ID as well. They require it to be worn visible on site. I'm getting ready to pay a year's worth of taxes so that's a pretty good amount of money on the card.

A: Your employer's practice strikes me as odd, but Missouri is an employment at will state and in general an employer is not prohibited from enacting odd workplace rules and terminating employment if an employee won't abide.

If you haven't done so, I suggest you voice your concerns to management. Maybe there's something that will work for both employer and employees.
