Pay Slip: A Confidential Thing
We tend to get excited when we are about to receive a check in which it contains your salary. However, be careful because not all individuals will be happy to see your salary even if he is your friend. Sometimes, he might dislike what you are doing. He might feel degraded especially if you show that you earn more than him. Also, he might take advantage on you because you have a lot of money.
Don’t Show Your Pay Stub/Slip to Anyone
In particular, do not show your pay slip to your co-employee. Many companies are having this type of rule. The disadvantage of showing it to your co-worker is that it may be questioned because there are times that your salary might be higher than the old and high-ranking employees. And sometimes, comparing your salaries will ring a bell to the manager as he is receiving many complaints. Always remember that your salary is confidential.
Protect Your Privacy and Personal Information
You should not show your pay stub because some of your personal information like your address, social security number and other important data are on your pay slip. Do not share too much information – anything about yourself is confidential. You can share it, but it’s up to you if you share all about yourself. However, be careful because sometimes, your manager may be annoyed with you what you share. Always remember that your goal is to help the company. Thus, be professional and do not be too personal to your co-worker.
