As you are aware lots of consultations are taking place in stores changing hours, shifts, and even department sometimes, if you have a claim registered for Equal Value and decide to go onto the new Contract 6 you MUST contact Leigh Day immediately to advise them of the change, Leigh Day contact details are 0800 689 3289.
You will be aware that GMB is supporting members in stores who are bringing equal pay claims against ASDA arguing that they should be paid equally as workers in distribution.
The time limit for bringing an equal pay claim in the Employment Tribunal is 6 months, starting with either the termination of employment or a change in contract.
Some workers have moved to ASDA’s ‘Your Choice Contract’. Changing contract triggers the time limit for bringing an equal pay claim for any work done under the old contract.
For example, if your old ASDA contract terminated on 7 October 2017 and you entered into ASDA’s ‘Your Choice Contract’ on 8 October 2017 then the time limit for bringing an equal pay claim in the Employment Tribunal in respect of the old contract is 6 April 2018. The ACAS Early Conciliation procedure must also be complied with.
If you have moved to the ‘Your Choice Contract’ and wish to bring an equal pay claim against ASDA in respect of your old contract then please call the GMB ASDA Equal Pay Line, which is run by our solicitors, Leigh Day:
