The Social Networking Online Protection Act (SNOPA)

social mediaOn April 27th, 2012, Rep. Eliot Engel, introduced the Social Networking Online Protection Act (SNOPA). SNOPA is being introduced with urging form the ACLU to pass legislation based on the rights to keep online accounts private; as concerns grow about employers asking applicants and employees for their login credentials to social networking sites.  SNOPA legislation prohibits employers from requiring a person’s login credentials to access their online content.

According to the ACLU website, “Such demands constitute a grievous invasion of privacy. Private activities that would never be intruded upon offline should not receive less privacy protection simply because they take place online. It is inconceivable that an employer or school official would be permitted to read an applicant’s or student’s diary or postal mail, listen in on the chatter at their private gatherings with friends, or look at their private videos and photo albums. Nor should they expect the right to do the electronic equivalent.”

SNOPA will make it illegal for employers to access personal accounts or devices that are password protected. In addition, SNOPA will make it illegal for any employee or applicant to be required to provide Facebook passwords or private material, for employers to pressure employees to accept an employer as a member of their social network, to discharge or discipline an employee who refuses access to their online social networking, and to refuse to hire anyone who refuses access to their online networking.

Happiness at Work: The Ultimate Productivity Booster


Wednesday, May 23, 2012  |  1 p.m. Eastern / 10 a.m. Pacific  |  1 Hour

Research shows that happiness – being satisfied with the direction of your life and your relationships – plays an important role in maintaining both mental and physical health. Happier people have fewer health issues, better relationships, less stress and can live longer.

With such clear benefits, how can you increase your happiness – especially at work? The workplace can be a source of stress, and dissatisfied workers can be disengaged, less productive and take more sick days. In contrast, when people are happy at work, they are more curious, make more money and are more productive.

Attend the Humana and LifeSynch webinar on May 23 with Dr. Robert Biswas-Diener, the foremost authority on positive psychology and life coach who helps people find joy in all areas of life, as he provides insight and strategies for finding happiness at work, including:

  • How happiness at work fosters better relationships with coworkers, higher productivity and a better ability to handle conflict
  • How to utilize positive psychology to improve your outlook at work and at home
  • The difference between a career and a calling
  • The skill of job crafting to make work more rewarding and satisfying
