Oh yeah, the salary issue…
Generally, a human tends to share all their details with others. In the same way, employees will casually discuss their salaries also. But in a corporate, it is a rule that employee is not supposed to discuss his/her salary with anyone, so we are calling it as pay transparency. Because based on the company requirement the company will offer different packages to employees and it is absolutely not the same for all 🤷‍♀️

 

Is discussing salary amounts a legal issue in Germany? In the U.S. it's actually illegal to prevent such discussion (as well as requiring the disclosure of previous salaries in the hiring process), but the social stigma against it is extremely strong.
