TOPEKA, Kan. - Two Kansas legislators want to prohibit employers from seeking social media information from job applicants.
Democratic lawmakers Rep. Gail Finney and Sen. Oletha Faust-Goudeau are working on a bill that would help job seekers keep their Facebook and Twitter accounts private.
Previous reports from the Associated Press revealed employers in at least five states were asking job candidates for their usernames and passwords so interviewers could browse their profiles prior to making a hire.
