Pending Law Will Ban Employer Facebook Password Queries

My take on the pending Maryland Law  (waiting for the Governor's signature) banning employer requests for social media passwords:
“Fishing expeditions into an employee’s private life are both bad form and an invitation for discrimination and breach of privacy claims,” Rubin says. “The real question to me, regardless of liability, is do you want to work for an employer who wants to snoop through your private information and does not trust you simply to provide it yourself?”

(I apologize for the obvious horn toot and the bad picture).
