If the company is coming from an european land, then they should not even ask for the passport, as the standard ID should be more than enough for everything within member lands. I made my first passport when I was already working in my second company in germany, because I had to travel outside europe.

Second for all the firms I have workd (3 different lands) they have needed my health insurance number for the official paperwork, but not just asking me to give them the number, they needed a special document from my insurance, and that after having my signed copy of the contract back at their places.

Without a contract already signed by them giving you the last word on the creation of the laboral relationship they have no right to ask you for such data.
That could be easily used to impersonate you in some government burocracy or be used as identity theft to do harm and let you run with the consequences.

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.

Straw Poll

When thinking about your job, how important is the option to work from home?
