Major update in the Tesco equal pay battle

Tesco is under fire for not paying its store workers a fair wage. While distribution centre employees receive up to £3 per hour more than their in-store colleagues, both groups do jobs of equivalent value, so they should be paid the same.

Are supermarkets falling short when it comes to equal pay?

In recent years, equal pay has become a hot topic within the UK’s retail sector. Major supermarket chains like Tesco, Asda, Morrisons, Co-op, and Sainsbury’s are all facing legal challenges over alleged gender pay disparities, and the spotlight on fair payment practices has never been brighter.

Men and women can make an Asda equal pay claim

The Equal Pay Act protects employees from unfair discrimination in the workplace. The law states that both men and women should be paid equally where they are doing the same job (or one of equal value). This means companies can’t treat you differently based on your gender when it comes to pay.
