No peeking at Facebook pages

Larissa Anderson Aug 23, 2010

Imagine a world in which it’s illegal for an employer to get info about a job applicant on Facebook.  That’s the world Germany might live in.  On Wednesday, the German cabinet will consider a new law to keep bosses from sniffing around in prospective employees’ social media pages. The law, however, will still let them Google applicants.
