is it legal for employers to ask for social media handles in job application or pre-employment forms? If it is unrelated to the job?
I understand for jobs like marketing, modeling etc. where a large social media following increases the cash flow, in that case it makes sense to ask for the handles as the person will be a face of the company. Hence the request and assessment could be written under job requirement.
But for a position completely unrelated to one's social media presence, is it legal?
