Should I share my salary with my coworkers?

Rounding it up

  • It’s illegal for employers to prohibit employees from discussing their salaries and there are laws in place to protect this right.

  • Women still earn 23 cents less than men in similar job functions; parity is one of the key reasons in favor of discussing salary at work.

  • Discussing salary can lead to jealousy, a poor work environment, and difficulty obtaining pay increases – so think carefully about your goals.
