According to research from the Institute of Payroll Professionals (IPP), more than one in six (15%) employees would read a colleague's payslip if they found it on their desk and were confident that no one was watching them.

According to the research nearly one in five (18%) workers discuss their salary with their colleagues and more than half (53%) talk about how much they get paid outside of the workplace with friends and family.

Elaine Gibson, Senior Policy and Research Officer for the IPP, said: “Talking about how much money one makes is usually a social taboo in the workplace and most of the time there is an implicit understanding amongst colleagues not to their discuss salaries.

“Many organisations discourage workers from talking about their pay, some even going as far to implement clauses into employment contracts requiring confidentiality on pay.
