Is that even legal to ask?

Some companies will make all kinds of ridiculous demands. Is it legal? I guess it is until someone calls them out on it and presses charges.

More often you run into all these crazy "non-compete" agreements.

DISCLAIMER: You read it on an open internet forum :)

Are you talking about a federal employer? Assuming this is during a pre-employment investigation, but it doesn’t really matter. I would say no, that would not be appropriate. Does it happen? Probably, and it depends on the context as to what could happen.
The excuse of, "I read it on FederalSoup..." won't work. Please do your due diligence.

I'm assuming you mean for a Federal position?

You don't get your firm offer letter until the background investigation is complete, you still only have a temporary offer letter. Therefore, either you or the agency can cancel the position/acceptance.

I guess they CAN ask, but they can't demand. Unless you're applying for additional jobs through the same HR office, how would they even know? Also, the hiring process takes so long, whose to say another job you applied for before accepting this one doesn't contact you?

If you at all feel like there are other opportunities you should pursue while you're on-hold, you should pursue them.

They can ask. You don't need to agree or comply.
