    5 Steps to Getting the Raise the You Deserve - A Guide for Women

    "Women often feel their work should stand for itself and therefore tend to wait for someone else to tell them when (and if) they deserve increased rewards or recognition, such as a raise. Rewards and recognition are a crucial part of your job and play a significant role in your confidence and sense of control over your career. Unfortunately, you relinquish a lot of control by waiting for others to bestow favorable things upon you. As with many things in life, you will not know what is possible unless you ask. Of course, asking for a raise is a very anxiety producing and scary proposition for most. However, with the proper preparation and perspective, you just may be surprised at how successful you are. Berkman Fives has developed an effective and actionable approach to this process. This approach not only takes holistic perspective on the process, but also helps prepares you for effective negotiation."

    When The New Person Makes More Than You

    "The new kid on the block may, in fact, have been brought in at a higher salary level. How you react to the situation depends on you: You can let it spoil your day or you can allow it to serve as a wake-up call.

    "Basically, the FLSA establishes minimums for fair pay and hours -- and it is the single law most often violated by employers. An employer must also comply with other local, state or federal workplace laws that set higher standards. So in addition to determining whether you are being paid properly under the FLSA, you may need to check to see if other laws also apply to your situation."
