In today's litigious society, the prudent HR guy does take salary survey
information into account. Any worker that feels underpaid can sue to force
HR to reveal pay equivalency within the company. This is especially true if
the company does any work for the federal or state government. Most states
and the US gov requires 'contractors' to pay at the local scale for
equivalent tasks. I've seen this successfully contested in the courts as
well as having the Dept of Labor force a gov contractor to give back-pay to
someone that was not paid at the published local scale for a particular
task. For example if they are doing Tech Writer IV tasks, but paid at a Tech
Writer II rate.
