Add New Hampshire to the list of states considering limiting employer access to the social media accounts of employees and job applicants.
Representative Peter Sullivan (D) told BNA that he is drafting a bill to restrict employers from requiring the disclosure of account passwords.
Maryland was the first state in the nation to regulate employer access to social media accounts. Illinois and California enacted similar bills in August and September, respectively.
New Hampshire joins at least 10 other states that either are considering similar workplace legislation or addressed but did not pass measures on the issue in the most recent legislative session.
Sullivan also told BNA that he intends to file a bill to allow a decedent's executor or estate administrator to obtain control of social media account passwords.
