State Of Minnesota Considering Legislation Prohibiting Employers From Asking For Access To Private Social Media Accounts



Paul DeBettignies KARE 11 Interview

This month (March of 2019) legislation (H. F. No. 1196 & S.F. No. 1432) was introduced at the Minnesota Legislature making it illegal for employers to require access to their employees’ private accounts, to demand they be opened in front of the employer, force an employee to “friend” a superior or change privacy settings so the account can be viewed publicly.

Whew… that’s a lot. I think I have it all straight.

Essentially your employer or possible employer cannot make you show them your private accounts.

There are likely going to be a few exceptions. One may be for those applying for security clearances.

I’ve been asked a number of times including in the interview below with KARE 11 if I am aware of local employers doing this. I am not. I have not heard of one case. And no one replied to KARE 11 with one. And I am certain that any employer silly enough to do this would have a major PR issue on their hands.

Is it needed? I guess the answer is yes if we want to be proactive and protect people.

MSP On Deck Podcast #28: Final Podcast For One Of Us, How We Started And A Little What’s Next



MSP On Deck Logo

Well… we’re back after a 2 month hiatus and A LOT has changed for Kathy Grayson, Casey Allen and I and I can say this with certainty, you’ll want to listen to this episode as it is full of beginnings, endings and change. In the end… all for the better.

We start right from the gate with Kathy changing our intro… Kathy is no longer at the Business Journal, Casey is a new and proud dad and I am a single dude. That last item is not nearly as big as the others. We’ve all known about our news items but this is the first time we’ve been all together since the end of December.

And it felt like a long overdue family reunion.

We start with me asking Kathy a lot of questions about her new role as a Senior Internal Digital Communications Specialist at Medtronic… what is the transition like for her and how the day to day has changed.

We spoke about her time (12 years) at the Minneapolis St Paul Business Journal… who she liked interviewing, stories she didn’t cover and would have liked to and the Twitter accounts @StartupMJackson and @aarpangelsmn

Alex Wittenberg is the new Kathy and he has already been doing a great job covering the Minneapolis and St Pau tech scene. You can find him => @mspbjWittenberg on LinkedIn and send him an email awittenberg@bizjournals.com

We went in depth on how this MSP On Deck podcast started and the evolution of it. How Casey and I decided to do it, how it was easy to want to do it with Kathy, other potential podcast names we had, the audio issues, what we would different, how we came to the Foundry podcast studio, dares and top episodes.

St Paul #10 Best City For Women In Tech


Top 15 Cities For Women In TechFor the past five years SmartAsset has put together data (gender pay gap, income after housing costs, tech jobs filled by women and four year employment growth) and ranked them. Click The Best Cities for Women in Tech in 2019 for this years survey.

St Paul appears on the list (again) ranking #10:

St. Paul ranks in the top 15 for only one of our metrics: It lands at 12th for gender pay gap. But while it doesn’t hit the heights in any single metric, it also won’t leave women in tech with much to complain about. St. Paul ranks no worse than 33rd in any single metric — in the income after housing data point — and ranks in the top 20 in two metrics.

Minneapolis appears on the larger list at #42.

As I do… I take a look to see where we rank compared to other cities in the “Midwest”… #7 Kansas City, #11 Detroit, #14 Indianapolis & #33 Chicago.

Previous year rankings:

2018

#6 St Paul

  • No city in our study has a faster growing tech industry than St. Paul. According to our data, the number of tech jobs grew by 41% from 2013 to 2016.
  • Women are fairly well-represented in the tech industry. Women in St. Paul occupy 26.4% of total tech jobs and the average women earns 89% of what the average man earns.

#35 Minneapolis
