Why Next Employees Could Be Owed £1000s

Equal Pay: The claim centres around the issue of equal pay between employees at Next. It argues that in-store workers, who are predominantly female employees, have historically been paid less than their male counterparts, who work in distribution centres.

Job Comparability: The claim asserts that the work performed by both in-store and warehouse workers is of equal value, and therefore, they should receive equal pay. It argues that the roles require comparable skills, effort, and responsibilities, and should be remunerated equally.
