BTW- Should Employers Ask for Social Media Passwords?
March 21, 2013
For those of you interested in keeping up with the latest in pre-employment background screening compliance and the laws that affect your use of employee background checks, check out our latest publication, “BTW: Your Guide to Staying Out of Hot Water“. This compliance resource has been crafted by our VP of Compliance and General Counsel, Angela Preston and is a must-read for human resources and security professionals.
Our March issue focuses on issues of consumer privacy particularly as it relates to employers request of their candidates’ social media passwords. While we don’t believe many employers engage in this practice as part of their employment background check policies, congress seems poised to create a federal law banning such a request. We also take a close look at a recent $3 million FCRA settlement and the trend of local/state governments adopting “Ban the Box” measures. For a preview of this issue, check out Angela’s video below.
