Tesco faces age and gender discrimination claim in employment case

Tesco is facing an age and gender discrimination claim after it cut pay for night and weekend working for some of its longest serving employees.

A group of 17 workers who began their employment with the supermarket before 5 July 1999 are taking legal action to fight the cut in wages, which came into effect in July 2016.

Tesco increased wages for all workers paid by the hour by 3.1 per cent in July, but at the same time standardised Sunday and Bank Holiday pay at ‘time and a half’. The company’s longest standing employees had previously been paid ‘double time’ for these shifts.

Tesco said: “Earlier this year we announced a pay increase of up to 3.1 per cent for colleagues working in our stores across the UK, in addition to a five per cent turnaround bonus. As part of the pay negotiations we also agreed to simplify premium payments to ensure a fair and consistent approach for all colleagues. The minority of colleagues who were negatively impacted by this change were supported with an agreed lump sum transition payment.”

This payment was reported to be the equivalent of the pay lost over the next 18 months. It has not been disclosed how many workers were affected.

Right to rest break under WTR is infringed even where there has been no explicit request and refusal

In Grange v Abellio London Ltd, the EAT held that an employment tribunal had erred in its approach to whether or not an employee had been denied his right to a rest break under the Working Time Regulations 1998. In deciding that an explicit request had to have been made and denied, the tribunal followed EAT authorities which should not be relied on. An employer has a duty to afford a worker the right to a rest, regardless of whether it has been requested. There can be a denial of the right to a rest through the arrangement of the working day. The case was remitted for reconsideration. (Grange v Abellio London Ltd UKEAT 0130/16/1611.)
