Thank you again and yes, that does help. Unfortunately, neither Georgia nor Federal wage laws require that an employer increase the pay of an employee who works additional jobs or higher level jobs, whether temporary
or not. In fact, no law that says promotions
must involve in an increase in pay. However,
if the employer has a written pay policy and pay bands for jobs, and a policy for when those bands apply, then they must follow those policies.
So, the issue is what your employer's actual policy says, which HR should know. You may or may not know that Walmart is notorious for playing fast and loose with wage laws and their policies. Whether by design or ignorance at the management level, I can't say. What I would suggest is that you contact corporate HR and find out the actual policy for the increase in pay. Whether it is 12 weeks or 50% of your duties (probably for a pay period
), if they are not following their own rules, then you may want to file a wage complaint with the Wage and Hour Division of the U.S. Department of Labor
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I would be glad to assist you further if I can.
