In this episode of the Employee Survival Guide, Mark addresses the issue of oversharing at work. He explores the pros and cons of oversharing. Obviously, oversharing can be damaging to other employees, i.e. mental nervous conditions and coworker abuse, a sexual harassment comment or ageist comment. But oversharing can also be used as a tool to set up your employer and protect your rights, causing your employer to go on the defense, and enhancing your severance package. In the alternative, oversharing can be used to prolong your job and prevent the employer from firing you when you overshare, i.e. complain of discrimination in a time stamped email. Again, another tactic your employer does not want you to know about.
