An amendment to Oregon’s previous social media law will go into effect January 1, 2016. It makes it unlawful for employers to do any of the following:

As before, employers may not require or request that an employee disclose any personal social media user names or passwords. As before, if employers need to conduct an investigation, they may require an employee to share content that has been reported to the employer and that is necessary for the employer to make a factual determination about the matter under investigation.
