Isn’t it illegal for someone who was hired after me to make more money that I do?
We recently had a call from an employee who was concerned because the company that he was working for had just hired a new employee, doing the same job that this person had been doing and had been doing for many, many years, but this employee was making more money. Is that illegal? The answer is it may be. In fact, under those sorts of circumstances, an experienced trial lawyer in this area of the law, this area of the law being labor and employment, will know to ask the right questions. For example, is this employee much younger than the person who is being paid less? Is this younger employee being primed to replace maybe an older employee, or a woman, or somebody who has been recently injured or suffered an illness?
