Tesco has been paying its distribution centre staff (who are predominantly male) up to £3 per hour more than their employees working on the shop floor (who are mostly women). “We believe that customer facing work should be viewed as equal to the work undertaken behind the scenes and that the remuneration should therefore be the same, regardless of gender. The current disparity is unlawful, and we estimate that each claimant could be entitled to thousands of pounds in backdated pay. Tesco employees who have worked in its retail stores in England and Wales in the past six years could be entitled to substantial backpay.

    KP Law filed equal pay claims against Tesco following the European Union’s highest court ruling in June that EU Law could be applied to UK businesses. Representing nearly 10,000 claimants, the firm argued that affected workers were entitled to backdated equal pay in line with the hourly rate given to their male distribution centre colleagues.

    KP Law filed a further equal pay claim against Tesco on behalf of almost 2,000 employees for failing to pay its store workers a comparable wage to employees working in its distribution centres.

We’ll provide more updates on the fight for justice in the Tesco equal pay case as they occur.

Tesco equal pay FAQs

Tesco has been accused of paying its distribution centre employees as much as £3 an hour more than its store staff. Under the Equality Act 2010, employers must pay employees in comparable roles equally. However, lawyers believe that Tesco failed to do this. Instead, the supermarket giant paid its (predominantly male) warehouse staff more than its (predominantly female) store workers.  

No. While it is likely that the difference in pay is due to gender, both men and women can join the Tesco equal pay claim as long as they meet the eligibility criteria.  

Yes. If you have worked at a Tesco store in England or Wales at any time in the last six years, you may qualify for a Tesco equal pay claim. 

No. Tesco cannot fire you, or treat you any differently for joining the claim. It would be breaking the law if it did. 

If you are currently working or have previously worked at a Tesco store in England or Wales at any time in the last six years, you may qualify to make a Tesco equal pay claim. 

We cannot say how much compensation you might get if you win your Tesco equal pay case. Each claim is based on its merits and your solicitor will work to get the compensation owed to you. However, we believe that Tesco owes many current and former store workers thousands of pounds in equal pay compensation.
