Summary by Littler-Mendelson P.C.: Maine has now enacted legislation that restricts an employer's ability to demand information regarding an employee's or job applicant's social media account. The Act expressly prohibits employers from requiring or requesting an employee or job applicant provide the employer with the password or other means of accessing his or her social media accounts. Governor LePage attempted to veto 65 bills including the Act. Maine lawmakers argued that the Governor missed the veto deadline; the Maine Supreme Judicial Court ruled that all 65 bills had become law.
Legislative outcome:Passed House 83-60-8, Roll Call #136 on 6/2/15; Gideon co-sponsored & voted YES; Passed Senate 35-0-0, Roll Call #127 on 6/3/15; Vetoed by Gov. LePage 7/16/15
