How much does it cost?
Nothing, unless you receive compensation. Roscoe Reid, a law firm specialising in equal pay claims, are representing Morrisons’ workers on a ‘no win no fee basis’. So if you receive back pay, a percentage is used to pay for their work. Roscoe Reid will explain the terms and ask you to sign an agreement with them. The figures we quote are an estimate after their fees have been deducted.
Will I definitely win?
We believe (and so do our legal partners) that there is a good basis for the claim. We cannot guarantee it will win because no legal claim is certain to win. But if you do not win, there is no cost to you.
How long before I get my money?
That will depend on how hard Morrisons fight the claim. It can be months (and sometimes a few years) for equal pay claims to be completed.
Who are Pay Justice?
We are a specialist company committed to helping people get their legal rights to fair pay. We are formally registered with the Ministry of Justice as a ‘Claims Management Company’. Our work is also funded as part of legal fees.
If you win the case, won't everyone win compensation anyway?
Morrisons have no legal obligation to pay back pay unless you have brought a claim, and they are unlikely to do this voluntarily. If the claims are successful Morrisons will have to remedy the pay gap. This could either be through raising the pay of those in stores, or through lowering the pay in distribution centres.
Could I incur any other costs if the claim isn't successful?
There are exceptions to the “no-win no-fee” concept where you may have to pay the solicitors Costs and Expenses. If you terminate the agreement more than 14 days after signing the DBA, you may encounter charges.
How is Pay Justice paid?
We are paid by the Solicitors, Roscoe Reid, who represent you in court. Pay Justice will never ask claimants for money. The only scenarios in which claimants will incur any cost from the Solicitors are if the claim is successful, or if the DBA is terminated more than 14 days after signing.
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.
