You might have a good relationship with your boss, but there are things your boss doesn't need to know.2

Nowadays, getting and keeping a job is challenging.

Some people feel that they're good workers.

And they’re often confused when they receive pink slips while other employees keep their jobs.

There are several reasons why one person loses their job while another keeps their's.2

There's no way to protect your position;

but if you keep a few things to yourself, you might reduce your risk of problems with your employer.

Here are seven things your boss doesn't need to know.

1. How You Spend Your Free Time

How you spend your free time is your business, thus it’s one of several things your boss doesn't need to know.2

Even if your employer is cool and down to earth, he or she may not appreciate hearing about questionable weekend escapades.

Keep conversations at work professional, and don't reveal too much about how you spend your free time.

To stop your boss from secretly checking up on you, check your social media settings to make sure that your name cannot be found in a search.

2. Spouse’s Income

Not that you would voluntarily share your spouse’s income at work however, if the topic comes up among your coworkers, do not spill the beans about your spouse’s position or salary.

If your boss learns that your spouse earns a lot of money, this might influence his or her decision if the company has to lay off workers.

If you're doing well financially, yet it's known that another employee is struggling, your boss might lay you off assuming that you'll land on your feet.

3. Your Side Gigs

If you work a part-time job or freelance on the side, these are other things that your boss doesn't need to know.

Again, the fact that you have a second income source might influence decisions if the company has to hand out pink slips.
