HR Was Reckless with My Salary Information

Evil HR Lady

HR sent me a letter of congratulations for my promotion along with my new salary and job description in an intra-office envelope. The kind that is “closed” by a flimsy little string and re-used again and again. Are you getting the picture? Intraoffice. Addressed to me. That’s it. The letter was not in a sealed envelope nor was it marked “personal and confidential” In short, ANYBODY could open it, read it, place back in the envelope and placed on my desk.

Saying "No" Helps Train the Recipient What "Yes" Looks Like.

HR Capitalist

If there's a big problem in corporate America, it's that we say "Yes" too much at times. Yes to that request. Yes, I can help you. Yes, I'd be happy to be part of your project team. Yes, your response to my request is fine. There's a whole lot of yes going around. The problem? Only about 1/2 of the "yes" responses are followed up with action that is representative of all of us living up to the commitment we made. That's why you need to say "no" more.

my office is really into corporate lingo

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I just started a new job and I’ve noticed that everyone is really into corporate lingo. It’s not the way I talk at all. But I feel an odd sort of pressure to start talking like everyone else, like I don’t want to be the expat who moves to France and refuses to speak French.

Businesses Steal $15 Billion a Year from Employees. Is Your Business One of Them?

Evil HR Lady

Wage theft sounds like something that sleazy men in back rooms perpetrate to further oppress their employees. While that does happen, a lot of wage theft is unintentional. A new study from the Economics Policy Institute (EPI) says that employers short their employees by $15 billion a year, which means that millions of people are paid less than minimum wage for their work. This is, of course, illegal, and everyone reading this article knows this, so why on earth would your company be in violation?

I Was Fired for Stealing. Should I Leave that Job off My Resume?

Evil HR Lady

From 2012 to 2015 I worked in a hotel doing almost everything back of the house. I was fired in 2015 right before Christmas for basically trying to take money. Times were very hard (although I know that’s not an excuse) at the time I was the only one working while my husband stayed home to care for our daughter who has a chronic health condition. Since then I’ve had interviews here and there but nothing ever really stuck mostly because of them finding out about the fire.
