Tesco Equal Pay Claim

Leigh Day is currently bringing a claim on behalf of Tesco store workers for equal pay. We are doing so to promote equality and challenge how large retailers pay their employees in different areas of their business.

Equal pay claims
Equal pay claims for employees working on supermarket shop floors are about whether hourly-paid store staff carry out work that is of “equal value” to that carried out by the staff who work in the distribution centres. The staff working in the stores are mostly women and the staff working in the distribution centres are mostly men. As a law firm specialising in group claims, we intend to bring the claim to an Employment Tribunal on behalf of Tesco workers, under the Equality Act 2010.

Tesco workers believe that their jobs are of equal value to the jobs of warehouse workers, so the rates of pay for both jobs should be comparable. If it is shown that the work between store workers and their counterparts working in warehouses and distribution centres is of equal value, and we can show that the reason for the difference in pay is due to their gender and can’t be justified, then the equal pay claims will be successful. We believe that we will be successful in these equal pay claims against Tesco as well as those we are running against Asda and Sainsburys. Shopworkers across the UK deserve equal pay and recognition for their efforts. 

Who can claim? 
  • Hourly paid, 
  • female or male, 
  • currently working at a Tesco store in England Wales or Scotland.
You can also bring a claim if you have left Tesco within the last 6 months. 

If you left Tesco more than 6 months ago, please contact a member of our team who will discuss how you may be affected. 

If you have worked for Tesco for more than 6 years will be entitled to the maximum amount of back pay.
