New Laws Take Effect In Missouri & Illinois

Posted on: 5:46 pm, January 1, 2013, by 

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – There is a huge difference this year between Missouri and Illinois when it comes to the number of new laws going into effect January 1.  In Missouri, employees paid the minimum wage are getting a ten cents an hour raise to $7.35.

Meanwhile, in Illinois more than 150 new laws take effect in 2013. Among them, a $3 per person tax for going to a strip club. The money raised is supposed to fund counseling for victims of sexual violence.

In Illinois, it is also now illegal for an employer to ask for access to an employee`s social media account.

Another new Illinois law targets underage drinking by creating stricter penalties for parents who allow it at home or anyplace else they control.

The most curious new Illinois law makes illegal the sale, purchase or trade of shark fins.  It comes in response to the inhumane practice of cutting fins off live sharks and throwing the fish back into the ocean.  The fins are then sold to Asian restaurants which serve shark fin soup.

One other change happening January 1 in Missouri is not a new law, but an old law allowed to expire which had restricted access to government records about preventing terrorist attacks and structural plans for government buildings.

I live in Illinois. If I go into a job and they want access to my facebook, cafemom, and twitter accounts, I will tell them to go fuck themselves. 

I have a feeling that law will be challenged and it will hopefully be ruled unconstitutional. I have a right to privacy. Employers wanting to know I do/say on the internet is an invasion of privacy.

You also don't have a right to a job with them if you want your stuff to be private.

Why would you want it ruled unconstitutional if the law is saying that it is illegal for them to ask for that information.

I thought I read that it is now illegal for an employer to ask for such access?

I would most certainly tell any one who dared ask for such a thing to screw off. I would not want to work for some one who would ask such a thing.

How is it the patrons of the strip clubs responsibility to pay for treatment for victims of sexual violence? Did they violate them?

actually, you do. What you do in your house isn't your employers business, or what you do in the park. Online is the same thing.

Unless you are accessing it at work. That's a different story.
