Think twice before you request an applicant's Facebook password. Legislators have submitted numerous bills recently both in the US Congress as well as in state legislatures prohibiting employers from requesting an applicant's password for social media sites during an interview. In addition, two US Senators have requested the EEOC and the Department of Justice to investigate whether such practices may be illegal under other federal and/or state laws. In addition, requesting an applicant's Facebook password can also be alleged to be a violation of the right to privacy. Attend this informative and cutting-edge webinar on the do's and don'ts of requesting an applicant's Facebook password to avoid legal liability for your organization.
