A group of lawmakers wants to make sure your boss can't get into your Facebook or email account. New legislation would make it illegal for employers to force workers to reveal passwords.
It's similar to a bill introduced last month but this one goes even further, extending such limitations to smart phones, private email accounts, photo sharing sites and any personal information on computers owned by the workers.
"This trend really goes against the fundamental values of privacy that are so deeply ingrained in our way of life and our Constitution," said Senator Richard Blumenthal.
Employers who violate the law could be fined 10 thousand dollars.
