Bill secures employees' private info

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - Legislation has been introduced aimed at protecting the privacy of employee's personal information. Senator Tony Ada says Bill 183 would add a new article to the Right to Privacy in the Workplace Act.

He explained, "What prompted this was back in the mainland, a lot of these issues were going about where potential employers were interviewing their potential employees and asking about their Facebook or Twitter accounts so that they could look into it and see whether they have anything they've said about the company or what their character out there in the Facebook world. And what we did is before it ever becomes a problem here or anticipate any problems, we want to get that step ahead where we ensure the privacy is always protected."

The measure is co-sponsored by Senator Rory Respicio. You can read Bill 183 on GuamLegislature.com.
