Tesco faces record £4bn gender pay gap claim

Tesco is Britain’s biggest retailer and its largest private sector employer with a staff of over 310,000.


Thousands of Tesco employees working in its predominantly male-dominated distribution centres are paid considerably more than the largely female-staffed Tesco stores (distribution centre staff may earn in excess of £11 an hour whilst the most common grade for store staff sees them receive around £8 per hour).


The final bill for Tesco could be as high as £4 billion if Tesco female employees decide to bring a case on the basis of sex-discrimination.


From 2017, any organisation that has 250 or more employees must publish and report specific figures about their gender pay gap.
