Proposed NJ “Facebook” Bill Will Challenge Employers

New Jersey employers will not “like” a so-called Facebook bill that’s pending in the New Jersey Legislature. The bill, which will likely pass, illustrates the trend towards limiting employers’ use of social media for hiring and firing decisions. In its current form, the bill (A-2878) would prohibit employers from requiring a current or prospective employee to provide or disclose any user name or password, or in any way provide the employer access to a personal account or service through an electronic communications device.
