Can I bring a claim?
Yes. Anyone who works in a Morrisons store on an hourly rate can bring a claim.
I have left Morrisons, can I still bring a claim?
Yes, providing that you have left within the past 6 years.
Is it only for women?
No. Men working in the stores can claim too. If the women win their claims, then male colleagues doing the same job as the women are entitled to the same compensation.
What Morrisons jobs are included?
This current campaign is for all store workers. You cannot claim if you work at a Distribution Centre.
Would it make a difference if I am employed as a manager?
If you have worked as a manager at Morrisons, it is important to establish whether you were/are paid hourly or by a yearly salary. The fact that you may be, or have been, a salaried manager does not prevent you from bringing a claim. However, the work of a salaried manager is more complex and individual than an hourly paid colleague. We are therefore currently only bringing claims on behalf of hourly paid colleagues.It may sll
be worth getting legal advice on your position by going to see a solicitor. You can search for solicitor on the Law Society website.
Will Brexit affect my claim?
Possibly at some stage, but not immediately. The equal pay claims against Morrisons are based on both domestic and European law. While negotiations are taking place about leaving the European Union, the law has not changed, and so your claim remains as it was before the EU referendum.
Please be assured that strong victimisation laws are in place to prevent any negative action being taken against you for bringing a claim. If you have any concerns about this or any other questions about the claim, you can call us and speak to our legal team in confidence.
