Employment Practice Group Chair Christian Boesl Reports:


The NLRB in South Carolina finds no safe refuge from the storm of controversy it created by exercising its self-proclaimed authority with posting requirements for South Carolina businesses. The agency is also finalizing the consolidation of the Atlanta and Winston-Salem offices.

States Institue New Limits on Employers and Social Media: Will  Your State Be Next?

Collins & Lacy Attorney Charles Apppleby


Attorney Charles Appleby Reports:


Maryland is about to become the first state in the nation to ban employers from requesting access to the social media accounts of employees and job applicants. New legislation that passed both houses on April 7 and only requires Governor Martin O'Malley's signature prohibits employers in both the private and public sectors from requiring or seeking user names, passwords or any other means of accessing personal Internet sites such as Facebook as a condition of employment. See, S.B. 433 and H.B. 964.


To find out how this may affect your state and business, read Charles' full report on social media and employers.
