Employer Access To Employee Social Media Limited In Proposed California Law

A bill currently winding its way through the California Legislature would limit the ability of an employer to request that an employee provide access to the employee’s personal social media accounts.

AB 1844 “would prohibit an employer from requiring or requesting an employee or applicant for employment to disclose a user name or password for the purpose of accessing personal social media, to access personal social media in the presence of the employer, or to divulge any personal social media.” [Legislative Counsel’s Digest]
