“They said me having this account was a security concern because I could post something private about the company. I asked, ‘Have I broken any policies?

Larson addedHave I posted anything on TikTok that is a security concern?’ And they said not at this time I have not but it could happen at any time in the future, so they’re just not going to take that risk.”

Bennitta Joseph — a partner at the law firm Joseph & Norinsberg LLC spoke to USA Today about the situation and potential concerns involving social media use.

“A company has a huge interest to make sure you are not engaging in discriminatory statements, disclosing trade secrets, threats of violence and unlawful conduct. If they do find out that you are doing any of these, it could be grounds for termination.”

Attorney Joseph suggested that Larson “should think about contacting a lawyer if she can show she was terminated for discussing her wages.”
