While speaking with a coworker I discovered that he is being compensated below the legal threshold.
I made this determination based on the following: http://internationaloffice.berkeley.edu/h-1b_faqs#6
[T]he employer ... must ... pay the H-1B employee the prevailing wage or the actual wage, whichever is higher.
I looked up his occupation for the area in which we work and live here: http://flcdatacenter.com/OesWizardStart.aspx
My coworker is very smart and hardworking. But he is afraid that if he even hints at any dissatisfaction in his pay, he will be terminated. We work for a Fortune 500 company. What can I do as a fellow coworker to help ensure he is being treated fairly? I honestly don't care if speaking up threatens my job security. Should I simply encourage him to talk to his manager (already did this)? Should I talk to his manager? Should I talk to mine? Should I go to the Ombudsman?
