Let’s talk about the taboo topic of speaking with your coworkers in regards to pay. Do you do it? Is there any laws requiring you not to? I know pay/salary can be a touchy subject but how else will you know that you aren’t getting cheated?

In the US, your employer cannot legally fire you or discipline you for discussing your pay with coworkers. I don’t usually talk pay with coworkers because I never know if they’re okay with it. But you probably should!

At the same time, in the US does your employer even need a reason to fire you? (Even if it involves giving you a 1 month notice period of similar)

I just found out my coworker is making 40k more than me…we do the same job. We became good friends after years so I finally got the guts to ask.

Many factors can contribute to that pay difference like years of employment… people at my company with the same job get paid differently due to their yearly merit and inflation bump. It is this reason that older employees are losing their jobs to younger people… less expensive to employ them. If you think about it… a bump every year for 20 years is quite a gap from newbies in the same position.

My firm has a collections budget (80% of your billable rate x 1850 hours) and an hourly budget that must be met in order to be eligible for a bonus. The firm cares very little about originations and will reward someone for making their collections over someone who brings in new work. I missed my collection budget due to some odd timing with a client, but originated more than all my peers so no bonus for me. I’ve been at this same mid level firm for 9 years and it’s all I know. Is this normal??
