10 Things You Should Never Tell Your Boss

Here Are Some Things Your Boss Never Needs to Know About You or Your Life

5. Sexual Orientation

Unless your sexual orientation is directly related to your job, there's no reason to disclose your sexual orientation to your boss.

Don't mistake this as advice to not be yourself or be ashamed of who you are. Far from it. But the harsh truth is that although discrimination is illegal, it still occurs. And in certain industries, stereotypes still work against individuals based on sexual orientation. Who you date or decide to marry is your business, and it would be a shame if a prejudiced boss used that personal information against you when considering a raise or promotion.
