A bill that would prevent employers in California from formally requesting or demanding social media user names and passwords from employees or job applicants is now before the California Assembly. The California Senate approved State Sen. Leland Yee's SB 1349 last week on a 28-5 vote.

The bill introduced by Yee, a Democrat representing San Francisco/San Mateo, would apply to public and private colleges and universities.

He said he filed it after reports of businesses, public agencies, and colleges around the country requiring employees or job seekers to surrender Facebook and Twitter account information, which represents an "unacceptable invasion of personal privacy," Yee said.
