Join the CO-OP EQUAL

PAY claim

Have you lost money because the Co-op didn't pay you fairly? You're not alone.

If so, Join the Claim to get Join the Claim to get the justice and compensation you deserve. 

Many current and former Co-op store employees believe they’ve been paid unfairly compared to their colleagues in other roles. Lawyers are helping them take action and stand up for their rights. 

Under the Equality Act 2010, men and women must receive equal pay for equal work. But the Co-op is accused of paying its predominately male distribution centre employees more than its predominately female store workers. While the difference in pay is likely due to gender, both men and women working in Co-op’ shop floors could be due compensation. 

What do we know about the Co-op equal pay claim? 

  • Co-op is accused of paying its distribution centre workers as much as £3 more per hour than its store staff – despite both groups doing work of equal value.  
  • Current and former Co-op employees could be due a pay rise and compensation.  
  • Some employees could be due as much as £24,000 in backpay. 
  • It‘s illegal for the Co-op – or any employer – to retaliate against employees exercising their rights under the Equality Act.
