My company have taken on a new employee who will be carrying out exactly the same role and has the same job title. They have no experience in the industry and I am expected to 'show him the ropes'. I've since found out they started him on a higher wage (over 3k/year), which I feel is unfair. I know companies shouldn't do this, but unfortunately do. I have spoken to a senior manager about this, but am being told there is more I can to to work my way up to the higher rate. I have no idea what this may be as we all do the same role. Does 'equal pay' come into effect in this situation? It almost feels like constructive dismissal as I am now demoralised and feel undervalued.
