Connecticut Legislature Alert!

In response to the Hartford Courant's article "Bill Prohibits Employers From Prying Into Personal Social Media Accounts"

Connecticut legislature alert. If the press reports are true who are they kidding.

A $500 fine for requiring employment applicants to reveal their social media passwords is a joke. First a good interviewer will get that information without requiring it. Second they can simply ask, if the applicant says no they finish the interview and find out they are not hired. No one will know why. Third if an employer cares enough to press it what are the odds it will get reported and fines. Finally it is only a maximum $500 fine and it may be only $25. 

Sounds like legislation to trick the public into thinking they really care about them.
