    21st century slavery
    Can a employer not give raise to the felon he has working but give them to everyone else? Can they take benefits away from felon but no one else? Can he not pay a felon for ANY OVERTIME he works just because he is a felon?

    Are you just blowing off steam because you are angry? Do you know all of this for fact, because I believe you are entitled to the same as any other employee.

    What does the employment contract say? If the employment contract has been violated then there is a case here, if not then yes he can do that. The response? Find a different job. There are better out there.

    Unless there is a contract, the raise and benefits are really up to the employer...OVERTIME though, is a law.

    If you actually told us the details about the job, the benefits, and the overtime, instead of leaping into slavery and hypotheticals, we might be able to give you a good concrete answer about labor law.

    Nobody is entitled to a pay raise just because someone else got one.

    You may or may not be entitled to overtime pay depending one exactly what your job is classified as.

    Being a felon or not has no bearing on it.

    Like the others said....we need the details. The devil is in the details.

    NO, overtime is paid, to anyone working overtime, it is a federal law.
    Raises depend on contract, but they do not have to give raises.

    Unless they are in a legitimately salaried position (or at least most salaried positions) Fr_Chuck. Hence the reason for more details. But I'm guessing they aren't salaried.

    Raises, unless mandated by a contract, are at the discretion of the employer. Benefits, however, must given to every eligible employee with no discrimination. An hourly employee must be paid for the time they worked and overtime must be paid at time and a half with few exceptions.

    So, as the others noted, more details will enable us to help you.
