When someone is navigating a divorce, one common question that comes to mind is: should I tell my employer about what’s going on? This might seem like an odd question, but nowadays lines are blurred and privacy is hard to maintain. Many people are worried that their employer could be crawling through social media, or snooping in general which could open them up to retaliation, and rightfully so. Teachers for example have been the subject of much scrutiny for doing something as simple as uploading a picture with a red plastic cup and it can be hard to predict how your employer might react to divorce.
