My responsibilities are growing, but my pay isn't. What should I do?

I'm a one-person HR department, but I know a lot about payroll from an earlier job. Our finance supervisor just quit, so now I'm doing that job too. The sole remaining finance employee got a raise to reflect his increased workload, but I haven't received any extra pay. How should I approach my boss to address this disparity?—B.G., Fla.

First, I wouldn’t recommend bringing up the other employee’s pay increase, unless for some reason, the lack of equity could be evidence of illegal discrimination. Prepare a case for the salary you want based upon market data and upon the clear increase in your workload. Just in case an increase is impossible, you should have a fall-back position such as a substantial bonus and plan to shift some duties to other employees, a flexible schedule, etc. Then, rehearse your pitch with a friend or partner to come up with some good phrases and delivery.
