Asda faces equal pay claim

In a recent decision, an employment tribunal decided that a group of female retail store employees could compare themselves to a group of male distribution depot employees for the purposes of an equal pay claim.

It has been reported that the sums in issue in these proceedings could exceed £100m and that Asda is now considering its options for appealing this preliminary point.

The fact that equal pay claims can take many years to resolve begs the question whether either equal pay law and/or the system for dealing with claims is fit for purpose in the first place.
