In the first ruling of its kind in the United States, Maryland’s General Assembly passed a bill prohibiting employers from demanding employee user names and passwords to Facebook and other social networks, the Baltimore Sun reports. It currently awaits Gov. Martin O’Malley’s signature.

“We are proud of Maryland for standing up for the online privacy of employees and the friends and family members they stay in touch with online,” Melissa Goemann, legislative director of ACLU of Maryland, said in a statement. “Our state has trail-blazed a new frontier in protecting freedom of expression in the digital age, and has created a model for other states to follow.”
