My new CFO tells me to have “nothing to do with salary administration because it's not an HR function.” I told him it definitely is an HR function, but he disagrees. His assertion surprises me. My belief is that HR and salary/compensation are an integral part of HR responsibilities. He is now giving raises and unequal pay treatment for various favorites, with no performance reviews to back it up. I am concerned and am not certain what to do. What advice do you have?
