If an employee works for a main entity and under that main entity are several smaller divisions, all within the same building. Does this justify an employee to higher compensation if they are asked to help another division during their busy season? Employee still works the same standard 40 hour week, no overtime, just splitting the 8 hour day between two divisions.

Unless this situation is specifically addressed under the terms of a union gagreement or employment contract, then such an employee is not entitled to higher compensation. The fact is tht a comany can set the conditons of employmennt much as it sees fit (absent some form of legally actionable discrimination).
