It does make it more difficult to pilfer or embezzle if there are checks as opposed to cash. I suppose if the rule is passed properly, it is not illegal.

They want a record trail of payment. You should want one as well. This also helps to limit the possibility of theft. All good reasons for such a policy. Bottom line, yes they can.
