Submission + - New Illinois Law Protecting Social Media Rights in the Workplace (illinois.gov) 1

sl4shd0rk writes: Illinois (USA) Governor Pat Quinn signed a new law this week protecting employees’ privacy rights cocerning social media. Bill 3782 makes it illegal for an employer to request an employee’s or job candidate’s social network login credentials, in order to gain access to their account or profile. "Members of the workforce should not be punished for information their employers don’t legally have the right to have," Governor Quinn said. "As use of social media continues to expand, this new law will protect workers and their right to personal privacy."
