The Toronto Star reports on Germany's Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere who announced that the government is planning a new law to protect employees' privacy, including making it illegal for employers to check on job candidates' private Facebook postings. The law would make it illegal for future bosses to ask applicants to become their Facebook friend in order to check out details they would otherwise keep private.
