DENVER — Employers would be unable to require employees or job applicants to provide access their online social network accounts if legislation approved this week by the House of Representatives becomes law.
House Bill 13-1046 was approved by the House Tuesday on a 13 to 0 vote. It now goes to the state Senate.
Sponsors say the bill would protect workers from the prying eyes of employers. “If you have a social-media account and that is a personal account, it has nothing to do with the employer,” sponsor Angela Williams told Westword. “That is private information that doesn’t have to be disclosed.”
