A: وعليكم السلام ورحمة الله وبركاته
If a person is hired by an institution in matters that are halal and the institution derives its wealth from halal means, then such employment and salaries would be permissible.
If the organization does things that are contrary to upholding the highest of Values as it relates to your earnings/income, then in such a situation a Muslim/ah must always limit themselves to abiding to that which is halal within the confinements of such employment to ensure that the wealth attained is be pure.
If one is always tempted to indulge in haram (forbidden) as a result of a given employment, then such a person must gradually seek an alternative source of income.
Allah Certainly Knows Best.
