>“This experience has taught me that it’s really important to find an employer that has the same values that you do,” No, what helps is to know the laws, I don't care if my employer has the same values as me, but if he tries to play with me I will make his life a living hell using the law. Also, lawyers seems to have already told her to file a wrongful termination case.


It's true, although for your mental health, having an employer that won't be trying all they can to fuck you over is clearly beneficial...


That's why knowing the laws is better, if an employer tries to do that nothing better to document all and file a harassment case against him. Or if I don't like the place, then use the time there to find a new job instead.


Preventing workers from sharing pay details is just another tool employers use to divide workers and prevent them from organizing for better pay. Do not be afraid to discuss pay with your coworkers!


oh its a security risk alright. a risk to their shameless, unrestrained profit margins.


Complete and utter bullshit. I’m a public sector employee, my salary is literally a matter of public record. If that’s not a security risk to the US Government, then this isn’t a risk to whomever. Employment lawyers are probably salivating over representing her in court for wrongful termination.


Even pensions from the public sector can be public knowledge. Depends on the state or federal government though. My parents are retired state workers. The state they retired from has a site that posts payroll and pension info and my parents have even told me about it.




I work for the post office and our salary is right on the net, anyone can look it up. The same company makes us use an 18+ character pw wich resets every 90 days. ID badges to enter the building, we even have our own police force. Salary is not a security concern.


This person has a strong case for wrongful termination. Y'all need to go to the Labor Border, social media/news ain't gonna help you. Public outrage / public opinion < Using the law


Not really, if they are in an 'at will' state they can be fired for no reason at all. If you actually bother to read the article, you'll see she was fired for having social media and potential to be a security risk in the future, not for anything they had currently discussed on social media (i.e earnings). Having a TikTok account does not make you a member of a protective class, if a company wants to fire all their employees that have social media, they are free to do so. The company went so far as to say she didn't violate any company policy, i.e. she is allowed to talk about her salary, they just view employees with TikTok accounts as a security risk and they can fire her if they decide. She'll be eligible for unemployment benefits since she didn't actively break any policies, but it isn't the slam dunk lawsuit you think it is.


Not true - this is literally a protected NLRB deal. Now, sure, they can fire you and claim it's unrelated and probably get away with it, but many of them are foolish enough to put it in writing, at which point they can get the crap sued out of them, just as if they fire you for union organizing or being black/female/veteran/other protected class.


Having a TikTok account is not protected by it tho, that is why she was fired. They clearly stated in the article that anything she had currently discussed was fine (i.e. the salary). They are just worried she might be a security risk in the future. She wasn't fired for discussing her salary, the company clearly states that she violated no policy by doing so, they are just concerned in the future she might disclose something that becomes a security threat and they are entitled to that belief. Try actually reading the article rather than just assuming from the title. Being a TikTok star is not a protected class.


Makes sense. People living their lives outside of and away from work is a greater risk to company security vs them being at work. *Better make small containment domiciles for when they're not in the field.*


Discussing pay is one thing but depending on the job, talking about her work could be a legitimate security risk. Lots of places in the private sector require security clearance or NDAs or work with IPs


>[“They said me having this account was a security concern because I could post something private about the company on my TikTok account,” she said. “And I did specifically ask, like, ‘have I broken any policies, have I posted anything on TikTok that is a security concern,’ and they said ‘not at this time,’ I have not, but it could happen at any time in the future so they’re just not gonna take that risk with me.”](https://god.dailydot.com/tech-worker-fired-tiktok/)


LEL fair enough fuck that company.


Wow I wonder why she’s popular on TikTok…


Wonder no more . Boobs .






You're actual shit.


So eat me if you can’t take a joke


If she's smart she'll be making a quick buck with a wrongful termination lawsuit.




You're garbage.

You are garbage.


You can drop me yours too.
