AB 1844 was first introduced to the California State Assembly in February. The bill is set to prohibit employers from demanding their employees or future employees to show their social-media accounts which include usernames and passwords. With the increasing use of social networking such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google Plus, some employees were suspended due to their social media activities. At the same time some supervisors have asked their staffs to provide access to their Facebook accounts due to a post or a photo they have posted.
