Workers Get Social Media Privacy In Illinois
(Springfield, IL) -- Good news for workers in Illinois come January 1st. Employers will no longer be allowed to ask for your personal passwords to Facebook, Twitter, or other social media sites. State Representative LaShawn Ford sponsored the bill after several people claimed they were fired, or not hired, because of content on their social networking pages. The law won't stop employers from viewing public posts on the sites, though. And, they're still allowed to ban workers from accessing the sites while on the clock.
