Motivation Letter, Resume (CV), and Facebook login

Posted on Posted in Uncategorized

Recently, more and more employers are now asking potential employees for their Facebook login information. The employers are stating that access to individuals Facebook login information is part of the vetting process for  the applicants.  Additionally, employers are preforming back ground checks and making sure the applicants are not affiliated with any criminal enterprise through Facebook.  However, most of the companies that are asking for this information are government agencies and state level public safety departments.

Facebook has condemned those companies that are requesting user login information because it “undermines the privacy expectations and the security of both the user and the user’s friends. It also potentially exposes the employer who seeks this access to unanticipated legal liability.” The legal liability are based on claims of discrimination against the employer for not hiring a potential employee based on certain information that the employer has been exposed too.

Facebook, American Civil Liberties Union and two US Senators believe that employers requesting user login information as an invasion of privacy. The two US Senators Charles E. Schumer (DNY) and Richard Blumenthal (DCT) are asking the Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. to investigate whether employers requesting users login information during the job vetting process are in violation of federal laws.  The senators are mainly concerned if the practice violates the Stored Communications Act, Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.  These acts prohibit the intentional access to electronic information and computer authorization.  Also, social media sites have an abundance of personal information that can be used against a potential employee such as gender, race, religion, ethnicity, age and sexual orientation which are all protected by the federal employment law.

What is your opinion about employers requesting your Facebook or any other social media platform login information?

Do you agree with Facebook’s response to employers requesting login information?
