Submission + - WA State Bill would allow bosses to seek Facebook passwords (komonews.com)

An anonymous reader writes: A bill amendment proposed Tuesday could allow employers to ask for a worker's Facebook or other social media password during company investigations.
The provision was proposed for a bill that safeguards social network passwords of workers and job applicants. The measure bars employers from asking for social media credentials during job interviews.
The amendment says that an employer conducting an investigation may require or demand access to a personal account if an employee or prospective employee has allegations of work-place misconduct or giving away an employer's proprietary information. The amendment would require an investigation to ensure compliance with applicable laws or regulatory requirements.
