New Hampshire Becomes the Latest State to Pass a Social Media Workplace Law

Starting on September 30, 2014, New Hampshire employers will be precluded from requesting or requiring that an employee or prospective employee disclose login information for accessing any personal online account or service. The new law does have several exceptions. Employers may request logins and passwords: (1) for an account or service provided by virtue of the employee's employment relationship with the employer, (2) for an electronic communications device or online account paid for or supplied by the employer, (3) to conduct an investigation, and (4) to otherwise comply with the law.
