Tesco’s £4bn headache

Equal pay claims at the UK’s biggest retailers could start to pile up after it has emerged that Tesco is facing a potential bill of up to £4 billion in back pay for thousands of employees.

Nearly 100 shop assistants and cashiers who are mostly women are seeking to be paid the same as their colleagues in Tesco’s warehouses, predominantly men, in what could be the largest ever equal pay claim in Britain.
Up to 200,000 shop floor staff could be affected if the claim ends up at the Employment Tribunal and the company may be forced to pay out as much as £20,000 in back pay over the past six years to some employees if the claims are successful.
