Worked at more than one supermarket? You could have multiple equal pay claims!

Have you worked at more than one supermarket? If so, you might be eligible to join multiple equal pay claims. Recent legal actions have highlighted significant pay disparities between store workers and distribution centre employees at several major supermarket chains. This means that if you’ve worked at more than one of these stores, you could potentially claim compensation from each one. 

Understanding equal pay claims 

Equal pay claims arise when employees performing jobs of equal value are paid differently. The Equality Act 2010 mandates that men and women should receive equal pay for equal work. However, many supermarkets pay their distribution centre employees more than their store workers, despite both roles being of equal value. 

Supermarkets under scrutiny 

Several major supermarkets are facing legal challenges over equal pay, including: 

If you’ve worked at any of these supermarkets, you might have an equal pay claim. Even more interestingly, if you’ve worked at multiple stores, you could have multiple claims. 

Why you might be eligible for multiple equal pay claims 

Each supermarket has its own employment terms and pay structures. Therefore, discrepancies in pay might exist in each of these workplaces. If you’ve worked at more than one supermarket, each role you performed might entitle you to separate compensation claims. 

For example, if you worked at Tesco and then moved to Morrisons, and both supermarkets underpaid their store workers, you could potentially make claims against both employers. 

How to determine your eligibility 

Not sure if you’re eligible for an equal pay claim? Follow these steps: 

  • Check your employment history: List all the supermarkets where you’ve worked over the past six years. Include the dates of your employment and whether you were paid an hourly rate. 
  • Use our instant online eligibility checker: Our simple online tool can help you determine if you qualify for an equal pay claim. Just answer a few straightforward questions and you’ll know in minutes if you could have one or more claims.

Why join a group action claim? 

Group action claims can be more powerful and effective than individual claims. By joining forces with other employees who have experienced the same pay discrepancies, you strengthen your case and increase the likelihood of a successful outcome. 

The compensation from successful equal pay claims can be substantial. Some workers have received thousands of pounds in back pay. If you have multiple claims, your total compensation could be even higher. 

If you believe you’ve been underpaid at one or more supermarkets, it’s crucial to act now. You have the right to fair compensation for the work you’ve done. Don’t let your hard work go unrewarded. Stand up for your rights and claim the compensation you deserve.
