(Neb.)-Bill Would Protect Worker Facebook Passwords

By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 01/11/2013 10:08 AM
     LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Bosses who demand access to private information within their employees' Facebook or Twitter accounts could be sued under a legislative bill in Nebraska.
     State Sen. Tyson Larson of O'Neill introduced a measure Thursday that would make it illegal for employers or potential employers to request the information from workers or job applicants.
     The bill would prevent employers from ordering a worker to log onto a social media site in the employer's presence. Employers also would be banned from demanding passwords, or accessing an account indirectly through a friend or third party.
     The law would not apply to information posted by employees that's in the public domain.
