Quinn signs so-called "Keep it secret" Facebook bill into law

Illinois employers no longer will be allowed to ask for their workers’ passwords to social networking sites under a measure Gov. Pat Quinn signed into law Wednesday.

Dubbed “the Facebook bill,” the legislation is designed to protect the privacy of workers and those applying for jobs. Employers can still request user names to review public posts, but would not be able to request access restricted portions of an employee or job applicant’s online profile.

Quinn said the law, which goes into effect Jan. 1, is needed to keep up with evolving technology.

“It’s important to understand that even though we live in an information world, a very fast-paced world where we can get information in split-seconds, there’s some information… that belongs just to the person,” Quinn said. “If they want to share it, that’s their business, but privacy is a fundamental right.”

I agree with the law's theme. Fucked up there needs to BE A LAW on this matter.

For an entry level or basic job, due diligence does not need to go past the public profile and basic back ground check. Plenty of people will be dumb enough (No Limit Nigger!?) to have the damaging goods on their public setting profile and not get hired anyway.

As people move up the ranks in a company, the screenings (like for C Level) and back ground checks are more rigorous and complete. That is an agreed trade off however.

The law makes sense, still it is funny this basic and decent practice of not raping another man's privacy just for a simple job would have to be made into law. Some busy work at play downstate, so I think.

I must write a book about this. But not a warning what will be but what may happen again if we are not diligent.

Isn't this the same fucker who wanted to make the FOID info public?

Quinn already took care of this probably by killing all of the jobs in Illinois so there were no more employers to ask questions.

Quinn looks like an old perv trying to pick up on the dude. The dude looks like he may be thinking about it, until the girl steps in and explains its a sin and Quinn's trying to explain his way out of it.
Ahhh, a picture paints a thousand words.
