California Ruling Bans Employers and Schools from Demanding Social Media Passwords
3 Birds Blog: In the News

Last week, California became the third state to pass laws that restrict employers and post-secondary schools from requiring access to social media accounts. California joins Maryland and Delaware in recognizing that social media accounts are private by nature and that forcing an employee or student to grant access is an invasion of that privacy. As quoted in an article from Bloomberg, California Governor, Jerry Brown, says that California is “pioneering the social media revolution and these laws will protect all Californians from unwarranted invasions of their personal social media accounts.” This is a trend that will likely continue to expand as social media awareness and use increases.
