It has been reported that California is now the third state to pass legislation banning employers from requesting or requiring the social-networking passwords of employees and applicant as highlighted in the very informative Delaware Employment Law Blog http://www.delawareemploymentlawblog.com/2012/08/california-is-now-the-third.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+blawgs%2FNZgVCom+(Delaware+Employment+Law+Blog).

From previous posts, Maryland was the first state to pass a social media password protection law with Illinois following shortly thereafter. It has been reported that with the passage of the employer-based bill, California’s protections will be the most comprehensive in the country.
