It’s OK to pay employees more if they negotiate harder during an interview, an Ohio court recently affirmed in a lawsuit against the Grande Pointe residential care facility in Richmond Heights.

The facility won most counts of a reverse-discrimination case brought by a man who found he was paid less than a woman in a similar, but not identical, job. The court also affirmed Grande Pointe’s right to pay a higher wage to combat higher turnover in the woman’s position.

Grande Pointe could not get summary judgment on the man’s claim that he was passed over for a position awarded to a woman. The company said the man slouched during his interview, didn’t take it seriously and refused to take a computer exam. The employee had a completely different version of the interview. In the absence of proof, that complaint will proceed to trial.
