Labor and Employment Law News


Posted on: Aug 13, 2014

In "laws you didn't know you needed" news, New Hampshire has passed a new law that employers may not require employees or applicants to disclose information to access their private social media accounts, such as login information and passwords. They also may not "compel" employees or applicants to add members from the employer's organization - including the employer - as contacts on those social media accounts.

The new law will be effective September 30. To learn more about what the law prohibits and what it still allows, check out this article.

Oh, and if you're wondering...no, Indiana hasn't made those actions illegal yet - but 16 other states have.
