The AP reports that employers are now requiring job applicants to hand over their Facebook and other social networking passwords.
Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Connecticut) asked the Justice Department to investigate this privacy violation -- and he needs grassroots support. Sign our petition supporting an investigation.
Justice Department: Employers should not be allowed to demand private social networking passwords from job applicants. This privacy violation needs to be investigated -- and needs to be stopped.
We are working with Senator Blumenthal’s office and will deliver this petition to the Justice Department. We’ll also inform the media about the petition’s momentum.
