  • more pay for family? Kentucky

    My former boss pays his daughter a significant amount above other workers in the same position with the same responsibilities.

    Is this in any way legal?

    100% completely legal.

      how is this not discrimination? to me this is no different than paying a man more than a woman, or a white more than a black, or a christian more than an atheists.

        It is discrimination...just not illegal.

        Is every other employees men? Are they being paid less just because of this fact?

        You can pay your employees how ever you choose, as long as your sole reason for paying someone LESS is not because of their sex, religion, national orgin etc.

          The difference is that gender, race, and religion are characteristics protected under the law. Family members/not family members is NOT a characteristic protected under the law.

          Therefore, any discrimination on that basis is legal.
          The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

            It may be unfair but it is not illegal. Sorry.
