Can your Employer Require your Facebook Password?


From the Dougherty Report news desk:

This week the Dougherty Report‘s Executive Producer, Michael Serio, talked with Attorney Donna Ballman about some employers now requiring access to their employees’ Facebook account. More and more employers are now making it a condition that prospective new hires also supply the confidential information.

Are employer’s forcing their employees to commit a “Term of Service” (TOS) violation?
