Brierley & Others v Asda
In a case described by the BBC as “Made in Dagenham for the 21st Century”, thousands of female ASDA shop workers are claiming equal pay with the company’s predominantly male warehouse staff, saying their own work is of equal value.
Three Outer Temple barristers, Andrew Short QC, Naomi Cunningham and Keira Gore are instructed by Leigh Day for the claimants. All three were previously instructed in mass equal pay litigation against Birmingham City Council. The ASDA case is the first such claim against a private sector employer, but it is unlikely to be the last.
