So I've read about the Fair Pay Act, which is unclear if it also covers people of the same sex. I know it is not legal for the company to prohibit salary discussion between employees.
I am currently in a situation where someone of my current title (Software Developer) is making significantly more than me due to some nice negotiation skills. Right now I am in negotiations for my Senior position, however the first offer was an extreme low-ball as it would have me making less than the non-senior developer still. Does California have any legal coverage for such a situation?
Edit: Responses I got made me think the situation is unclear.
I am about to be promoted from Software Dev 2 to a Senior Dev 1. The other person is Software Dev 2, yet with the extra responsibilities and skill, they are offering me less than some one of a lesser title.
