Ill. House OKs ban on password snooping by bosses

Ill. House OKs ban on password snooping by bosses.


This is a highly disturbing issue that I have been following.  Just recently I learned that several attorneys in our bar association are asking their employees for their facebook passwords and other social media password.  Bottom line – the Illinois House approved a restriction on this and now it’s up to the senate.

I recommend that you call your state senator and encourage them to sign this restriction into law.

Bottom line – if your employee is on facebook during the work day for personal use, then maybe it’s time to get a new employee.  If an employee is having a discussion about working conditions at their place of employment – it’s protected.    This is an evolving area.
