Join the NEXT EQUAL

PAY claim

Is Next due you up to £6,000 for paying you unfairly?

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

Next is facing a £30 million equal pay claim. The British fashion retailer is accused of paying its largely female shop assistants 24% less than its predominantly male warehouse employees. Warehouse staff also received bonuses that shop assistants never had access to.

According to legal experts, the work shop floor assistants do is comparable to that done in the retailer’s warehouses. Under UK law, workers should get equal pay for equal work.

Lawyers have launched group action claims to help Next store workers get back the wages they should have received. If successful, Next shop workers who join a claim could receive thousands of pounds in backpay.

What do we know about the Next equal pay claim?

  • In the UK, employers have to pay men and women equal pay for equal work.
  • Legal experts believe that in-store and warehouse staff at Next did jobs of equal value and deserve equal pay. But Next pays its warehouse employees on average £2ph more than its store staff.
  • If the claims are successful, current and former employees who have made a lawsuit against Next could be owed around £6,000 each.
