Supermarkets face a £10billion 'equal pay' bill as thousands of staff at Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury's and Morrisons launch claims they are paid less than colleagues doing the same job

Simon Murphy, The Mail on Sunday

"Britain's biggest supermarket chains face a potential bill of up to £10 billion if an avalanche of equal pay claims are upheld.

Thousands of current and former staff at Tesco, Asda, Sainsbury's and Morrisons have already agreed to submit claims worth up to £20,000 each.

But claims management company Pay Justice, which has launched a Tesco Action Group with law firm Harcus Sinclair UK Limited as part of its Equal Pay Action initiative, estimates that more than 580,000 workers may be eligible.

They currently have more than 8,000 employees signed up to claim."
