and move in sacramento to stop california employers from getting access to people is activity on social media covering employers and job applicants so why is it a good idea to stop employers from asking for your loved information? the put the question to the assemblywoman the author of the bill. one of the things we need to start doing is as the social media continues to become a big part of our lives our laws have to reflect on how to protect individuals so that their employer doesn't have access to their social media network or site just like when you interviewed in the past an employer could not ask to see your family photo. i'm hoping with this passing that it would preventing employers from having access to your user or password to get on to your social networking site. of people have been talking about this but it seems like who
8:47 am
is actually asking about for this will cut jobs with the request this. added a number of jobs and employers are asking for anything from law enforcement and anyone from a tech company and they think one of the things that we're not sure about is that we know that it does give employers the ability to do it because there's nothing that prevents them from asking. do think employers to try to find if respective put employees are like a loose cannon what's the purpose of it? could be anything as a woman to see if you have young children and we be able to put in the hours in the time that is expected for that particular job. so i think it is important because people should be judged on their merit and qualifications not what they do in their private life. but that private life especially on social media has
8:48 am
been the cause of people to lose their jobs teachers that have been bounced out because they've been found drinking are carrying on on facebook and other facebook postings or social network postings have cost people their jobs. what it wouldn't do is it doesn't prevent an employer from going to one special shall be a sight. but what it will do is focus on protecting the individual and not allowing the employer to have access to your user name or password which means that the employer cannot go beyond the wall. there are finer points in the law firm landor stand dealing with coercion where an employer can they simply asking you the right to say yes or no or if you're unemployed or jesus had no choice? if the employer cannot even ask cannot have access cannot
8:49 am
and they can't even ask we please log on to your social me a site with your password and user name. so it will eliminate the provision in the employer will not have access and not have the right to do that. is there any opposition what you see happening? currently right now been working with cal chamber and other entities we don't have any opposition at this point. the people know that the time is now to start looking at privacy laws that protect social media off to people are open and will continue to work with anyone that may have questions on what may prevent them from being able to look or how we can continue to strengthen this. what are the ideas and sacramento strengthening it is 20 became think of it if this passes the assembly woman told us that the flip side is game
8:50 am
provisions there that would protect an employer in the litigation that the world if somebody had something on facebook a member of a question of grouper something that came up later and said widened to check that out. suddenly they could be charged with discrimination to this would protect them from those lawsuits as well. the most interesting thing is that there's absolutely no opposition to it right now in sacramento and we will see if that fact stance. when we get down to the details we will see but happens and also with those laws we wonder why it's not all against the law right now. the whole thing seems weird to me nobody ever said that anybody is actually ask them for their password i would find that the start apparently it's happening. a bad day at work or school there's a place read and smashed computers furniture and more the so-called angry room up next.
