A fried of mine told me this happened to her. During a job interview, the interviewer went to Facebook and asked her to sign in and leave the room. She did, and about ten minutes later he said she could come back in. I was floored – as was everyone else who heard the story. The audacity.
On the other hand, I don’t think the interviewer was going to steal her identity or search for pictures of her less than fully clothed. I’m sure he performed a number of routine searches to be sure she wasn’t a spy or a terrorist or whatever.
Violation of privacy, yes. Necessarily sinister, no.
So, in the end, I disagree with a law making that practice illegal. Hypothetically, even if someone wants to only hire people who would pose nude, that should be their prerogative.
