HOW MUCH AM I OWED?
We think that the average claim for back pay will be about £5,000. Your claim might be worth less or more; it will depend on lots of factors, including how many hours you worked, how long you worked at Tesco, and with which distribution role it is most appropriate to compare your job. We will also seek an improvement in your pay going forwards, if you still work at Tesco.
HOW MUCH WILL IT COST?
The claim is no win, no fee.
What is the legal case against Tesco?
The Tesco action group's claims are for equal pay under the Equality Act 2010.
What about the other supermarkets?
Tesco is not the only supermarket facing an equal pay challenge.
Will I lose my job or be disciplined if I claim?
Do I have to be a member of a union to claim?
No. You can register to be part of the claim whether or not you are a member of a union.
I'm a man. Can I claim?
Yes! If the women are successful in their claims, it would be unfair and unequal if your pay were not adjusted as well. Your claim will be a 'piggyback' claim. Although your claim will depend upon female claimants winning their claims, it is possible to lodge your claim now, at the same time as the women's claims.
I'm a former Tesco employee. Can I claim?
Yes, provided that you did not leave your employment with Tesco more than 6 years ago (5 years ago if you live in Scotland).
Why should I join?
Your reasons for joining will be personal, but here are three main reasons to join the claim:
Compensation. You may be entitled to benefits including back pay for up to six years, as well as an improvement in your hourly rate of pay. How much you can claim will depend on things like how long you have worked for Tesco, but most claims will be worth over £1,000.
Equality. Taking action is a step towards eradicating inequality in the workplace. Without it, employers' attitudes are unlikely to change.
Accountability. Bringing a claim holds employers to account for choosing to reward men and women differently for work of equal value.
