I was under the impression that handing over passwords to websites was in breach of the actual website T&Cs in a majority of cases. The invasion of
privacy is just a start. What do they do with the passwords? As with most things that are filed, they will be accesible to not only the employer, but
anyone who chooses to snoop around the employers office.
I find it pretty disgusting that anyone would feel obliged to hand over such material for the sake of keeping a job. No one will get anything of the
sort from me, and if me getting fired is the result then I'll see my employer in court so we can ascertain what privacy actually means online and why
such a frivellous reason was chosen to depart with the skills I bring to any given job. Honestly, in my line of work there are more than enough
security measures to ensure that I'm not a danger to those I work with. Sticking everything I do online on a silver platter with bells on is simply
not going to happen, nor do I think it is reasonable to assume that it will be remotely enforcable.
