Tesco faces record £4bn equal pay claim
Tesco is facing Britain's largest ever equal pay claim and a possible bill running to £4bn. Thousands of women who work in Tesco stores could receive back pay totalling £20,000 if the legal challenge demanding parity with men who work in the company's warehouses is successful. Lawyers say hourly-paid female store staff earn less than men even though the value of the work is comparable. Tesco said it worked hard to ensure all staff were paid "fairly and equally".http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-42968342
