Our legal alert covers proposed legislation by the State of Maryland which would ban employers from asking job applicants for their Facebook login information.  This new law is supported by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Finally, our tip of the month discusses when and why employers should consider conducting background checks on current employees.
Please forward our e-newsletter to friends and colleagues who may benefit from our published information.

Sincerely,
