Wow... That is so far over the line, that I can't even see the line anymore. Here, do you want my bank account passwords too while you are at it, perhaps 7 years of tax returns, whats next house keys?
I totally agree about liability, they would get sued and unless they had a nearly airtight system to store that kind of information and policies behind it. Either way they wold probably lose, without much thought. And lets be real little town USA is NOT going to do anything like that.. Its ON somebodies desk in an open folder for all to see..

They've stopped the practice, and no one's sued them (yet), but it is amazing sometimes how people view the world. I still stunned that anyone thinks this was ever OK.

It was a bad idea, and they've changed their minds on it.

You're right (Steve) that it should never have been made a policy in the first place.

What they've replaced it with is nearly as intrusive, and only marginally less stupid.

Soft referencing is growing in popularity and I can see its appeal. Googling yourself is always quite interesting when you haven't given it much thought!

Given you can't ask someones age anymore, the idea of asking for usernames and passwords is just absurd.

Can anyone actually access facebook from behind their corporate proxies/firewalls or have I been working in Insurance too long?

Steve.

I'm sure you can get to Facebook, but if they watch and you spend too much time there, you might get "counseled"..

Different companies block different sites. I'd rather they didn't block them, but if they get too many requests from some PC, go talk to the owner. Treat people like adults, but if they abuse the privileges, then deal with it.

At JD Edwards they used to block cbs.sportsline.com to prevent fantasy football. Unfortunately they didn't get around to cbs1.sportsline.com, cbs2.sportsline.com, etc.

Of course it's all over now, it was a long time ago. but Steve's blog today pointed to it.

If a municipality in the UK (or, I believe, anywhere in the European Union) tried that it seems very probable that they would quickly have a nasty headache with government lawyers; it's probably in violation of the our Declaration of Human Rights and probably in conflict with our data protection directive and the legislation stemming from that.

Besides, it would be fun to publicise (with appropriate emphasis) the fact that this employer was not prepared to employ anyone insufficiently dishonest to want to break the terms and conditions they had undertaken to be bound by - clearly, one should trust no-one employed by these bozos.

Gus,

what did they replace it with?
