Colorado is 10th State to Adopt Social Media Password Protection Law

Maryland was the first, and Illinois the second to pass a law prohibiting employers from requiring or requesting that job candidates or employees turn over their social media account passwords.  Check out the link at the end of this post for a great summary of Colorado's law.  According to the author, the Colorado law differs from other states' laws as it contains additional exemptions to the ban and the penalty provisions are somewhat weaker than the other nine states' laws.
