Do HR in big4 firms disclose your salary to your new employer? What info do they share?

Why to do that? Also i am sure that they can not release any personal information unless you give them permission. I asked for a landlord referral from our HR recently and EY HR sent me an email to confirm that i approve the request to send salary information to the referral company.

Previous salary is not relevant to the new employer. They just confirm employment dates/role

They just confirm employment dates. If your potential employer wants a reference from a supervisor, they need to ask your permission but typically it’s very limited: how long did they know you, what strengths, any concerns on integrity/honesty (ie it’s a due diligence check).

Requesting for salary information without your authorisation is against the law, at least in the UK. I’ve worked in three different companies in the UK (2 big 4) and non of them have ever asked to disclose my salary. They just need to confirm that you are actually employed by the company, the role and the dates.

I love when the senior managers and above make comments such as “this generation just doesn’t like to work” as reasoning for high turnover. Most of the accountants in this generation prioritize things other than accounting. Life is more important than bogus numbers on an EGA or tax return. Maybe the firms should make a conscious effort to prioritize their people instead of revenue and clients. Maybe then the strategies will be aligned and there won’t be as much turnover.
