Asda equal pay battle heads to Supreme Court
The UK Supreme Court will on Monday begin hearing one of the country’s biggest ever equal pay cases over a claim brought by more than 43,000 supermarket workers against US-owned Asda. The company, a division of Walmart, is asking the Supreme Court to overturn earlier court rulings that found that the pay of store workers, who are mostly women, can be directly compared with that of mainly male depot staff in Asda’s distribution operation, who are better paid.https://www.ft.com/content/1812fe22-06bd-46ce-b2ec-0d324bdc7983
