Are there unequal pay laws that are not gender, race, or age related?

My employer hired someone that has the same job as me. Same title, same responsibilities. This person has a couple years less experience then me. I also have a wider skill set (I was on the interview committee). This person is the same gender, same race, and about the same age. The employee was able to negotiate a substantially higher salary then I get (posted on public website). I find this insulting and unfair. But, every search I do on unequal pay seems to only address discrimination. Do I have any legal grounds to pressure my employer into paying me the same or more than the new hire?

I mean I'm not saying no, but...

Okay, hiring managers and HR folks of AskMe. Suppose your company has a job opening, and you've interviewed a candidate. Things went pretty well, and you want to make that candidate an offer. You have your recruiter call and ask him for his salary requirements, and he gives you a number. What are some reasons why you might then come back and make an offer that is $10,000 more than what he was asking for?

Car accident & worker's compensation

Yesterday afternoon, while on the job, I was involved in a car accident. I was crossing an intersection when a car ran a red light and slammed into my front passenger side. My car went into a telephone pole. Thankfully there were no serious injuries to either parties however both cars were totaled. Witnesses called the police and a police report was filed. The investigator took the statement of one witness who watched the other car run the red light and hit me. I have a few questions about what happens next to make sure I am taking the right steps.

When to push back and how?

I have an amazing job which pays well. However, due to staffing problems I'm repeatedly being asked to drop everything and take one for the team, sometimes on very short notice, with not even an 'attaboy' to show for it so far. How do I push back against this professionally? [more inside]

How does profit-sharing really work?

I'm interviewing for a position which includes a profit sharing program, and it sounds like it's a major component of the compensation (as opposed to something nice on the side). What are some normal, reasonable terms of profit-sharing programs? How would I compare this against a normal salaried position, and how do I negotiate for the best terms?

Bad bra. Now what?

In late July my wife bought a bra from a national retail chain. She wore it one day and was left with a painful large welt/wound on both sides that made it uncomfortable to wear any bra for three weeks. When she explained what happened to the store, they put her in touch with their corporate offices. The welt/wound has mostly healed, although some red areas are still visible and there is some mild throbbing and more-than-occasional itching. She saw a dermatologist who said that there may be some permanent discoloration. The corporate rep indicated that they'd pay for the doctor's visit, although there really wasn't any out-of-pocket cost because the visit was covered by my insurance. Beyond this, can she expect some kind of compensation for the pain, inconvenience and continued problems? What's the best way to go about asking the company? Do we need a lawyer? How do we find one?

How much can I fudge my salary history?

Relating to yesterday's credit check question, how do you reply to a prospective employer who wants your salary history in a way that's fair to your value? So many IT/Web type jobs over the past few years have seen pay rates chopped down. If they ask, and A) I know my former employers don't give out salary information; and B) they don't require some sort of three year old pay stub - then why can't I just fluff it up to my true value again? I don't want to get in trouble, but I'm sick of getting low-balled. There's no way I can let them continue to get away with this! Do you just lie? What's the system?
