The Maryland Senate has unanimously passed a bill to prohibit employers from asking workers and job applicants for their social media passwords. Steven L. Johnson, an assistant professor of management information systems at Temple's Fox School of Business, said unless the person is a public figure, there is no legitimate reason for an employer to demand access to a worker’s social media accounts. “That’s like an employer saying, ‘We need to be able to inspect your home on a regular basis.’”
