Remote work has significantly shifted employee expectations | Flipboard
Briefly

The rise of remote work has led to a new trend of employees recording and sharing their video layoffs on social media platforms. This can serve as a form of empowerment and solidarity in a lonely situation, with millions of people watching these videos and offering support. Brittany Pietsch, a tech worker, gained attention when her video layoff went viral.
"I knew that ultimately, I was not alone and my coworkers and friends were on my side," Pietsch stated, acknowledging the positive impact of sharing her experience.
However, there are potential consequences for both the employee and the employer. From a legal standpoint, sharing internal company communications without permission could lead to legal repercussions for the employee. Additionally, employers may be concerned about the impact of these videos on their reputation or future recruitment efforts. Publicly sharing a video of a layoff can also jeopardize the employee's chances of finding new employment, as potential employers may view it as unprofessional or a breach of confidentiality.
"While sharing a video layoff can provide temporary relief and support, it's important for individuals to weigh the potential long-term consequences before deciding to post it publicly," warns career expert Emily Nock.
