Hey everyone. Thank you so much for your help. The owner of my company has updated our visitor policy to state that "A valid credit card may be requested prior to entering the facility to protect inventory"
Is this totally crazy? Can we even ask people to do that? Have you ever heard of anyone doing this? I have not ever heard of anyone doing this.
Some of the background is he was trying to keep an appraiser out of the facility (nasty divorce), and he threatened the appraiser that he would charge him a butt-ton of money if he touched anything. He lied and said it was part of our visitor policy (it wasn't) and then he changed the visitor policy.
I feel very uncomfortable about asking an auditor or government official for a credit card before entering the facility.
Any ideas on what I should do? Should I just let it ride? Delete it from the policy? Any help is greatly appreciated.
