    Employers Cannot Require Access to Employee’s Personal Accounts

    On December 1, 2013, a new law went into effect in New Jersey which prohibits employers from requiring or requesting current or prospective employees to provide user names or passwords to personal accounts, including e-mail and social media accounts, e.g., Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc. The law does not, however, prevent an employer from viewing, accessing, or utilizing information about a current or prospective employee that can be obtained by the general public, such as public Facebook or Twitter posts. The law also prohibits employers from retaliating against individuals who refuse to provide user names or passwords.
    If you believe that your employer or prospective employer has violated this new law, you should immediately contact the attorneys at McMoran, O’Connor, Bramley & Burns, P.C. for a consultation.
