The supermarket equal value pay claims rumble on and the case of the Asda employees is now heading to the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court will consider whether shop floor workers at Asda can be compared to workers in the distribution centre for the purposes of equal pay, in one of the UK’s biggest equal pay cases.
In January the Court of Appeal ruled that the roles of shop workers could be compared to those of warehouse staff, upholding rulings made by an employment tribunal in 2016 and the Employment Appeal Tribunal in 2017.
Supermarket equal pay claims
The Supreme Court’s decision to hear the supermarket’s latest appeal gives Asda one final chance to prove that the roles are not comparable.
It will be interesting to see where this ends up given the number of other cases pending.
All the best
