Social Media Protections For Employees

Employees and prospective employees who fear that what they have posted on social media in a private setting may be used against them in their job or to cost them a job take note.

16 states have adopted laws prohibiting employers from taking adverse actions against employees who decline to provide social media account and password information. And another 20 states have legislation pending.

The laws are designed to limit employers to publicly available information and keep what is marked private as "private." Maryland was the first state to legislate a prohibition against employers from seeking employees' social media passwords in 2012.

You should call the employment lawyers at Alan Lescht and Associates, P.C. if you believe that you have been denied a job or terminated from a job because you declined to provide your social media password.
