Becomes the First State to Ban Employers Asking for Facebook Passwords
Maryland’s State General Assembly passed legislation that
would prohibit employers from requiring or seeking user names,
passwords or any other means of accessing personal Internet sites
such as Facebook as a condition of employment.. It is expected
to be signed into law by Gov. Martin O’Malley (D).
Maryland ACLU legislative director Melissa Goemann said that Maryland
"has trail-blazed a new frontier in protecting freedom of
expression in the digital age, and has created a model for other
states to follow." However, according to this
report from C. Benjamin Ford, the Maryland Chamber of Commerce
opposed the prohibition because the bills did not acknowledge
there could be legitimate issues for some employers to want to
review applicants' or workers' social media messages.
