Employment Law Questions? Ask an Employment Lawyer.
Hello and welcome. My name is ***** ***** it will be my pleasure to assist you.
I agree that this does not seem right. However, employers do not have any legal obligation to be fair. So, you cannot sue your employer for giving you more work with only a modest increase in pay. Doing this does not violate any law. Your options here are to accept the new terms of employment being offered to you, quit in favor of new work, or attempt to negotiate something better. It sounds like you are a valuable asset to your employer. They probably don't want to lose you and will likely be open to paying you more if you bring up your concerns in a polite and professional manner.
If I can clarify anything at all for you, please do not hesitate to ask. It is my pleasure to assist you further if necessary....
