Veteran journalist Carl Hoffman believes he’s solved one of the great mysteries of the 20th century. In 1961 at the age of 23, Michael Rockefeller – son of New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller and a member of one of the richest and most powerful families in America ¬– travelled to remote New Guinea in search of primitive art for his father’s new museum.
Statehouse Bill Would Ban Employers From Requiring Passwords
Listen to the Story
A state senator from Columbus has introduced a bill to ban Ohio employers from asking employees or potential employees for passwords to social media sites like Facebook.
Dem. State Senator Charleta Tavares says her bill would prohibit employers, employment agencies and labor organizations from requiring an applicant or existing employee provide passwords for social utility accounts.
She says employers can already send friend or connection requests to view information.
“But to ask for the password so you can get into the site? I think that is going way beyond what is acceptable, and it really is an invasion of one’s privacy,” Tavares said.
Taveares says her bill would also offer protections for people who refuse to divulge their passwords.
Tavares says her legislation would also seek to prevent negative repercussions for Ohioans who are unwilling to divulge social utility information.
