An editorial piece by Donald Scarinci on PolitickerNJ.com discusses how New Jersey laws are trying to keep pace with technology.
Scarinci notes that under a bill that Governor Christie is deciding whether or not to sign, New Jersey employers won't be able to ask current or prospective employees to disclose their social media user names or passwords.
Other proposed legislation increases penalties for texting or talking on handheld devices while driving. Scarinci says this legislation would impose some of the harshest penalties in the country to combat cell phone use behind the wheel.
The author, a partner at Lyndhurst NJ law firm Scarinci Hollenbeck, notes that these technology laws could have unintended applications in the future and that they need to be updated frequently to keep pace with technology changes.
