Outer Temple team effective in Supreme Court Equal Pay hearing – Asda Stores v Brierley

Outer Temple team effective in Supreme Court Equal Pay hearing – Asda Stores v Brierley

The Supreme Court unanimously rejected Asda’s appeal and held that the Claimants (35,000 predominantly female retail employees) can use male distribution employees as comparators for the purposes of an equal pay claim in a judgment handed down this morning. Andrew brief QC, Naomi Cunningham and Paul Livingston had been instructed by Leigh to appear on behalf of the Claimants day.

The claims are brought in the foundation that retail workers are paid lower than distribution workers despite carrying out work of equal value.
