+ - Michigan makes it illegal to ask for employees' Facebook logins->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Michigan joins Maryland as a state where employers may not ask employees or job applicants to divulge login information for Facebook and other social media sites. From the article:
"Under the law, employers cannot discipline employees or decline to hire job applicants because they do not give them access information, including user names, passwords, login information, or “other security information that protects access to a personal internet account,” according to the bill. Universities and schools cannot discipline or fail to admit students if they do not give similar information."
There is one exception, however:
"However, accounts owned by a company or educational institution, such as e-mail, can be requested.""
