Time Card & Wage Privacy

Question to Ask the Workplace Doctors about wage information:

I work at a small company (under 10 employees). I have worked here for about 12 years; the first 5 it was only my boss, a warehouse worker and me. Two years ago, we brought on my boss’ 24 yr. old daughter and 2 friends (boyfriend/girlfriend) to work with us. He will be away for a couple of months and has left time keeping to be done by the daughter’s friend. Now that friend has access to my hours and wages, but he is not management or in any executive position as far as I know. I don’t feel comfortable having this information given to just anyone. Is this ok for them to do, legally or otherwise?
