My question involves employment and labor law for the state of: Ohio
I have worked for this company for 1 year. I was hired on at 15.00 an hour and I was told that is is the highest pay they were able to offer me with an entry level position. I work 2nd shift.
About 2 months ago a new employee was brought on to work 2nd shift with me (both of us are the only 2 people on second shift) and they started him a dollar more an hour than they gave me. He know's someone in higher management who was able to get him one more dollar an hour.
We both hold the same exact job title, and do the same exact thing -- he has a felony record I might add.. not that it matters, he is a nice guy. i am just frustrated that they started him out an hour more than they did me....
are they breaking any rules by doing this? equal pay act?.... something?
