Bosses who demand access to private information within their employees' Facebook or Twitter accounts could be sued under a legislative bill in Nebraska.

State Sen. Tyson Larson of O'Neill introduced a measure Thursday that would make it illegal for employers or potential employers to request the information from workers or job applicants.

The bill would prevent employers from ordering a worker to log onto a social media site in the employer's presence. Employers also would be banned from demanding passwords, or accessing an account indirectly through a friend or third party.

The law would not apply to information posted by employees that's in the public domain.
