A tech worker in Denver was fired after posting on Tiktoks that she got a $20,000 raise at her new job.

Lexi was fired from her new job two weeks after they discovered her salary transparency after they discovered her security concerns.

In one of the videos, Larson separates the $449 every other month increment – or nearly $900 month to month – she would get with her new compensation.




This video is what she thinks got her fired out of nowhere.

In one of the videos she posted about the firing, she said that her employer found her TikToks and didn’t like that she was sharing her salary. They said it was a security concern because she could post something private about the company on her TikTok account.

When asked if she had broken company policies, she was told that it could happen at any time in the future, making them question her judgment.

Even though she could not be fired for talking about her salary, she decided to take some of them down just days before she was fired because she was afraid of repercussions from her company.

Since Colorado requires job postings to include a salary range, she thought there wouldn’t be a problem with posting her salary.

‘I did go and check their Colorado job posting after all this happened and they do not have salaries listed,’ she said on TikTok.

The tech employee was not looking to leave her job at the time but had been approached by the company via LinkedIn. When she was offered a much higher salary, she thought it would be a good idea to jump ship.

When she first made an account, she found it helpful and wanted to do the same.

‘I also think salary transparency is important, just because that’s how you know you’re getting underpaid in the workplace, which – as a woman – I’m very passionate about,’ she said.

After calling her old manager, she was able to get her old job back, which she will return to on Monday. She said that her old and current employers have no issues with her account.

There are a few factors that determine whether or not the firing of Larson was legal, considering she had not breached company policies and could not be fired for discussing her wage.

Colorado is an at-will state and can fire employees for no reason. Employees can file a lawsuit if they can prove they were wrongly terminated.

If she used company equipment for the TikToks, the company could have fired her. It is not known if she used anything belonging to the company.

Matthew Bergman, the founder of the Social Media Victims Law Center, said that the idea that her actions were a firing offense seems pretty harsh.

‘She was only there for two weeks,’ he told USA Today.

If she can show she was terminated for discussing her wages, she could have a good case against the company, according to another lawyer, Benetta Joseph.

Companies will look at employees’ social media to make sure they don’t spout off discrimination or reveal trade secrets.

Bergman told USA Today it’s important to take a step back and be cautious when revealing personal information on social media.

‘It’s probably better to keep your money matters offline,’ he told the outlet.
