EMPLOYERS ALLOWED TO ASK FOR PASSWORDS
An alteration to the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, or CISPA, which would have made it illegal for employers to force workers to give up their social media passwords, was struck down. That means companies could be within their legal rights to demand their employees’ Facebook or Twitter passwords in order to get or keep their jobs. It’s only one of many complaints about the controversial proposed law, which critics say could be used to spy on private citizens. At the very least, it’s yet another reminder that the embarrassing photos you post on Facebook could really come back to haunt you.
