The Arizona Home on Fri gave final approval to a bill that in most instances might stop companies from demanding access to present or prospective employees' private email and social media accounts. The election was

79-64. The measure, by Rep. Helen Giddings, D-Dallas, now goes to the Senate.

"This bill permits private emails and [social media] to be kept private, and is about the protection of free speech and privacy," Guy Riordan said.

There was no discourse.

Some company organizations and high-tech industry interactions have compared the bill, saying it could slow a firm's internal study of leakages of proprietary information.

Giddings said after a number of her Dallas constituents reported to her that in career interviews, they had been forced to reveal how you can obtain their private emails and social network website accounts she became interested within the problem.

"I cannot believe it," she mentioned.

It is a hot topic. Eight states have prohibited employers from asking work candidates and workers for their social network passwords, with a few exceptions. Giddings exempted law enforcement organizations, declaring they need leeway to more aggressively study potential police officers. A national legislation regulating insider trading supersedes state regulation of monetary services organizations, she said. Over 30 other states are looking at comparable regulations, based on the National Conference of State Legislatures.
