Equal Pay; In the Modern Day
Why are tens of thousands of retail workers in the UK making equal pay claims?
- For many retail workers, equal pay is still a predominant issue in employment.
- Recently, ASDA has been under fire for not paying equal rates for jobs of equal value. In the legal cases progression, The Employment Tribunal has ruled that ASDAs appeal against these workers claim was unjustified, and we think so too.
- The law on equal pay is clear: not only should men and women be paid the same for doing the same job, they should be paid the same for doing work of equal value. This is a battle we should not still be tirelessly fighting in 2017.
