Should I port my cell phone number to my new employer?

I've had my cell phone number for 10 years. My new employer is a large non-profit organization (thousands of employees). They'll buy me a new phone and pay for the service. They won't just reimburse me for my service plan as my last employer did. I don't really want to carry a second phone and have a second plan. It seems that if I want to take advantage of this benefit, I'd need to use the university phone as my primary phone and port my phone number over to the university. I'm trying to figure out if I should do this. [more inside]

The new employee is sketchy, and only I know it.

I just started a new job as a researcher. They hired a few people around the same time as me and we all have start dates around now-ish. I've been there a week. There is a new guy starting in my department in a more senior position than me, but not supervising me, on Monday. I just got his name today and looked him up, and... there are some things about him that a little bit of digging uncovered that are sketchy. (It's definitely him, please give me the benefit of the doubt here.) His job is not likely to be impacted by these revelations about his recent past, but if it were to get out that his history includes these things, it could endanger my company's reputation if a competitor or journalist found out. Nothing he did is illegal. [more inside]

Should I provide a W-2 to a potential new employer?

Should I provide a W-2 to a potential new employer? A job offer was made to me pending a background check. The background check is delayed because my current employer has not replied to the new employer(I do not know why). I was given the option to verify employment using a W-2 form. Do I want to give all of this information to the new employer? I didn't lie about salary but never gave a direct amount. The new job is a 15% increase and I feel like I should not make that obvious to the new employer. If I never stated or lied about a my current salary am I worried about this for no reason? Is 15% going to be perfectly acceptable to them if I am the right candidate?
