Blog Roll: Employers Liable For Using Facebook
July 15, 2009
Two great blog postings from two great online legal sources. The first by Jon Hyman of Korman, Jackson and Krantz talks about a restaurants liability of firing employees after reading their Myspace posts. This does not fit with our argument about not using it for background screening prior to hiring but it is closely related. If you read our story about Bozeman Montana you will see how this jury finding is important and timely. The practice of requiring employees to divulge their passwords violated the Stored Communications Act.
The second story comes from the Legal Blog Watch. In it, 69 year old human rights activist Khedija Arfaoui is facing an eight month jail sentence in Tunisia for posting a message on Facebook about rumors of children being kidnapped in the country for their organs. Enjoy!
