Your HR Department is Selling Your Compensation Details to Credit Agencies
There’s always been a disturbing asymmetry between employers and employees when it comes to hiring and firing. For example, if the job applicant embellishes a bit on their resume or interview answers they can and often are fired immediately. What people forget is that employers embellish and downright lie as much, if not more, than employees. However, when the employer is caught lying the response is usually a laugh and an admonition to the employee lured in with false promises to not be so naive.
Now we discover that Equifax and HR departments are colluding to share employee’s compensation data.
