Legal blow for Asda in equal pay case


Thu, 31 Jan 2019

Asda has lost the first of three stages of its appeal against a ruling that store and warehouse staff deserve an equal hourly pay rate. The decision means that lower paid shop staff, who are mostly women, can compare themselves with higher paid warehouse workers, who are mostly men. The company said it was "disappointed" with the decision and said it remained confident in its case. A ruling over whether the work is of equal value is likely to be given in May.
