Being self-employed, I had not run into this situation personally. Various stories have been emerging on the web about employers demanding someone's Facebook password. In a ZDNet blog last February Emil Prtalinski wrote on how Officer Robert Collins of Maryland Division of Corrections was required to release his Facebook login credentials during a recertification interview. Today, New York Senator Charles Schumer (D) and Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal (D), announced their intent to ask the U.S. Department of Justice (DOI) if such practices are legal. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) will also be asked to investigate this trend. What the senators are asking is if this practice violates existing laws in the Stored Communications Act or the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. In case it isn't, they plan to draft legislation to stop such requests.
