CO Tech Worker Fired After Posting TikToks Explaining How She Got A New Job That Raised Salary $20k

A Denver IT employee who explained on Tiktoks how she received a $20,000 raise at her new job, moving from $70,000 to $90,000, was fired.

The employer where Lexi Larson started their new work last month dismissed her two weeks later due to “security concerns” after learning about her salary transparency TikToks.

Lexi Larson was 'fired out of nowhere' 2 weeks into her new job after her boss found her TikToks account, where she posts salary transparency videos

On her TikTok account last month, Lexi Larson spoke about how she changed jobs and increased her salary from $70,000 to $90,000. There were 168,000 views of the video. She continued to make videos on how she obtained the job for the following two weeks.

Larson claimed that shortly after her employer found out about her TikTok account, she erased certain videos out of concern for their wrath.

Larson claimed in a later video that her posts led to her termination.

“So, TikTok got me fired,” said Larson, who goes into detail about knowing that talking about her salary is federally protected by law under the National Labor Relations Act and why she took down some videos.

“…They ended up firing me because they said me having this account was a safety concern because I could post something private,” Larson said.

Larson opted not to file a lawsuit and omitted to mention her old workplace. But her dismissal raises issues regarding what you can and cannot post on social media about your profession.

When using electronic communications, such as social media, bear in mind that your company may have prohibitions prohibiting using their equipment, according to the National Labor Relations Board.

If Larson decides to file a lawsuit, she might have a strong case, according to Bennitta Joseph, a partner at the New York law firm Joseph & Norinsberg LLC.

“She should think about contacting a lawyer if she can show she was terminated for discussing her wages.” said Joseph, who noted that most employees are usually fired for disciplinary or performance reasons.

Employers will probably keep an eye on their employees’ social media accounts to make sure they aren’t engaging in any unlawful behavior, according to Bergman and Joseph.

“A company has a huge interest to make sure you are not engaging in discriminatory statements, disclosing trade secrets, threats of violence, and unlawful conduct,” Joseph said. “If they do find out that you are doing any of these, it could be grounds for termination.”

“The higher up you are, the more careful you have to be about what you post,” Joseph adds.

“I think it’s important to take a step back and be cautious when revealing personal information on social media,” Bergman said.

“Whether it’s an employer looking into your activities, or a potential swindler looking to take you of your money, I think it’s a dangerous road,” Bergman added.

He has another piece of advice.

“It’s probably better to keep your money matters offline,” Bergman concluded.

Man ‘quits job and disappears’ after being paid $150k instead of $500 by mistake

After being mistakenly paid £150,000 for a month’s worth of work, which was 300 times his wage, a man ended up resigning and disappearing entirely.

The unnamed worker was employed by Consorcio Industrial de Alimentos (Cial), and according to the Chilean financial news website Diario Financiero, he was due $545 in May.

He was mistakenly paid 165,398,851 Chilean Pesos ($178,629) in May, which meant that his pay that month was hundreds of times higher than it should have been.

Now, the nameless employee grabbed the cash and fled rather than returning it to the business. Since then, no one has seen or heard from him.

According to a local news source, Cial contacted the employee to talk about his incorrect pay when HR discovered the problem.

“He was informed and clarified that this money did not correspond to the payment of any service,” Chilean legal documents claim, per Diario Financiero.

At first, the man promised to return the stockpile and assured his boss that he would visit the bank the following day.

His bosses tried calling, texting, and using WhatsApp to get in touch with him but were unsuccessful. Later, on June 2, the individual got in touch with the business to submit his resignation.

Following numerous warnings to attempt to recover the extra money, Cial has now taken legal action against the former employee.

The average monthly salary in Chile is $907.87, so it’s not surprising that the man vanished after receiving significantly more money than he had anticipated.

While the employee in Chile abandoned his company, another worker in the UK made the decision to file a claim for unfair dismissal after being awarded £12,138.40 in compensation.

Samantha Jackson, a former employee of New Look, claimed in court that Kirsty Sherburn, her line manager, had bullied her for bringing Nike sneakers to work.

The employee alleges that although her line manager was aware of the knee problem that required her to wear the trainers, she was nonetheless told not to return to work wearing the “horrid orange things.”

The employment tribunal determined that New Look’s mistakes amounted to a breach of confidence, which resulted in an unfair dismissal.

Employment Judge Jonathan Brain said: “There can be no reasonable and proper reason for a store manager to treat a junior employee in this manner.”
