A bill passed by the Maryland General Assembly and awaiting Gov.
Martin O’Malley’s signature would bar employers from
asking current and prospective employees for social media user
names and passwords. Maryland is the first state to pass such
legislation, but similar bills are under consideration in
Illinois and California. Social media privacy issues have
garnered attention from federal lawmakers, with U.S. Sens. Chuck
Schumer (D-NY) and Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) calling for
investigations by the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S.
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
