Question: Recently some of my employees were given a pay raise. It was not an across-the-board increase. One of my employees, who tends to be a troublemaker anyway, started discussing his wage increase with other staff members and causing them to be dissatisfied with their raises. We have a policy prohibiting employees from discussing their pay with each other. Can we fire this troublemaker for violating our policy?
Answer: Sorry, but a “go-ahead” to terminate this employee could get your business into serious trouble.
