Tesco is failing to pay supermarket store workers a comparable wage to employees working in its distribution centres. However, these store and distribution centre workers do jobs of equal value and should be paid equally. As a result, we believe that current and former Tesco store workers deserve compensation for the money they have not been paid.
At Keller Lenkner UK, we are helping Tesco store workers make an equal pay claim against the supermarket giant. These Tesco store workers could be owed thousands of pounds each, but what do you need to know about the Tesco equal pay claim?
Tesco Equal Pay Claim FAQs
Tesco is failing to pay supermarket store workers a comparable wage to employees working in its distribution centres. Tesco has been accused of paying distribution centre employees as much as £3 an hour more than store staff. However, store and distribution centre workers do jobs of equal value and should be paid equally. As a result, we believe that current and former Tesco store workers deserve compensation for the money they have not been paid. These Tesco store workers could be owed thousands of pounds each.
At Keller Lenkner UK, we are helping these Tesco store workers make an equal pay claim against Tesco.
We are bringing claims on behalf of store workers who are currently or have previously worked at a Tesco store in England or Wales at any time in the last six years.

You will only have to pay anything if you win. You will not have to pay anything up front. Any payment would only come out of the money that we recover from Tesco on your behalf. We will conduct the litigation for you under a no win no fee agreement.
If you win, our fees will be deducted from your damages. If you do not win your claim, then you will not be liable to pay anything (except where you have told us something untrue or otherwise misled us about your claim).
If you are successful, our success fee is up to 45% of any compensation we recover for you plus expenses.
Keller Lenkner UK believes that Tesco store workers could be owed thousands of pounds in compensation because they were not paid the equivalent to Tesco distribution centre workers.
No. When you claim against an employer, the law automatically protects you from any act of retaliation. Tesco cannot treat you any differently for joining the claim.
Not at all. The process to join is straightforward and can be completed quickly from your phone or computer.
We cannot tell for sure how long the case will take although we anticipate that the Tesco equal pay claim could take several years. It will be hard-fought by Tesco and a number of Court and/or Employment Tribunal hearings will be required.
We will provide regular updates on the progress of the claim once you have formally signed up to the Keller Lenkner UK Tesco equal pay claim.
If you are interested joining the Tesco compensation claim, sign up with Keller Lenkner UK to see if you are eligible for the claim.
Absolutely. Anyone, male, or female, who has worked at a Tesco store in England or Wales in the last six years in an hourly paid job may be eligible to claim.
It is likely that the difference in pay between store and distribution centre workers is due to gender and that Tesco views the work done by store workers (typically women) as lesser in value. This is unlawful.
However, while female store worker claims will lead the equal pay case, their male colleagues might also be eligible for the same level of compensation and backpay if successful. So, a male store worker can also bring a ‘ claim. To be awarded compensation, both male and female workers must make a claim.
Yes, you can continue to work for Tesco if you join our claim. It is unlawful for Tesco to fire you for pursuing a claim against them, or to treat you any differently.
Yes. If you are made redundant, you can still make an equal pay claim. We recommend that you join the claim as soon as possible to ensure you receive as much compensation as you are owed.
If you are made redundant and your employer asks you to sign documents about your redundancy or your redundancy pay, do not sign them until you have sought legal advice. Also, you must tell your legal adviser that you have issued or intend to issue an equal pay claim.
Once you have signed up to join our claim, there is nothing more you need to do. We will let you know if you are eligible and, if so, invite you to formally join our action. We will then progress the claim on your behalf. Please keep copies of any documentation regarding your work at a Tesco Store.
