You may as well put the JPEG of you passport up on your Facebook page, then.

Once its out of your hands its out of you control.

This whole thing is a recipe for disaster for all the employees.

This is true, indeed. Also what Carlos said regarding data protection laws.

If it is unavoidable to send *a* passport scan because you need the job and can't negotiate about such things with the company, I would fake the passport jpg: using gimp to alter the number, date and any data of the document that they wouldn't know and can't check, and blur the photo a bit ("sorry for poor scan quality"...), that would also hide your image manipulation...

So should it go public somehow at least it would not reveal usable data to identity thieves...

I know this is not correct, but what the company asks you is not correct, too.
