My company has a job position posted I would like to apply for a transfer same job just a different location the Minimum pay advertised is a lot more than I make now. My boss said that the advertised pay is a mistake and I would not make that amount, as she tries to discourage me to apply for this position . Can she do this
I can't see any legal issue in this scenario. I don't even see how you have been coerced at all or where the "bait and switch" is. Maybe your boss is trying to save you from being misled into leaving your job? If you don't believe her good intentions, you don't say why you couldn't simply apply for the job anyway. "Discouraging a subordinate from applying for a transfer" is not illegal.
Not exactly sure what it is you think your supervisor is 'doing' that is wrong. There is nothing in your description of events that indicates any law is being violated.
