This week brought some protection for employees in their use of work computers and social media. The en banc Ninth Circuit ruled that employees who violate an employer's computer use policy do not commit a federal crime under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act. But employees should take note that the circuits are split on this issue. The Maryland legislature also sided with employees by becoming the first state to pass a bill banning employers from requiring social media passwords. The bill currently awaits the governor's signature.
