Just to be clear, those who are signed up through Leigh Day are only doing so in a 'No Win, No Fee' capacity. If the staff claiments lose their case, they have no fees to pay. If the case is won by the employees then Leigh Day get their 25% cut from every staff member claiment's winnings. This is why it is a worthwhile enterprise for Leigh Day. If it comes off for them they will make millions in exchange for their legal expertise and time. There is no risk to individuals signed up through leigh Day unless you try to leave them half way through litigation or something extremely stupid like that.

That's my thinking. If tesco do have to pay out then the employees who didn't use a claims company could be better off than the ones that did.

No, because even with paying 25% it works out better to join through Leigh Day.  Leigh Day claims get backdated 6 years from claim received plus the time it takes to resolve (in my particular case that will be 2012 until est resolution date 2022); whereas a private claim after the ruling will be no more than 6 years and may be capped.  In my case the Leigh Day option provides better compensation regardless of the 25%.  Someone did comment somewhere within this thread that the more people who sign up the percentage goes down, however I've not read this from Leigh Day but from a comment made in this forum.
I had break down of the fees when i receive my documents. There was note that the more sign in fees might go down.
Out of my head i found somewhere on gov website that , tha the law is constructed in that way to benefit those who will seek court solution. As said earlier its similar to PPI.
 Anyone, who will not join claim, will not receive a single penny. They will  benefit from new higher pay if tesco establish it. If Tesco loose case then lawyers will start working around to protect company from further looses.

The court case is for the back pay not the pay rise that will come from it. So if you are not in the pay claim then you wont get any money unless you do your own claim and court case.

Yes and once you threaten to do this tesco will pay out as they know they will lose anyway if it goes to court.

Would you recommend workers that have only been in Tescos a few months sign up to this claim? I'm male by the way.

Also would your managers be notified of your complaint? And is there anything legally stopping me talking about the claim to other colleagues?

They got the papers as there was another hearing and the bits that were in them look favourable on our side not Tesco.

If this one goes ahead there will be even less staff and even more stock which doesn't reach the shopfloor.  (-*-)

Just out of interest is it worth a back-door man and grocery staff joining up to this claim or is it just for distribution.  My husband has worked on back door 17 years plus and produce and grocery before that, work is hard and he has a hernia through moving cages off wagons.  I saw it but we didn't know if he would be victimised by the hierarchy..

Yes he is eligible to join up. They can't victimise him or then he will be able to claim for victimisation and/or unfair dismissal so it's not worth their trouble trying it on.

The latest development is basically that the lawyers have got their hands on some Tesco document which found that in 2014 Tesco themselves had compared many in-store roles with that of an Assembly/Picker role in distribution and Tesco had judged that these roles in store were more demanding than that DC role.

There's a legal hearing in October 2020 to decide whether this document can be used as evidence in the case and obviously if it's judged that it can be used in the case it's not going to look good for Tesco and could speed the whole legal process up.

Looks like it might be a good time to put your claims in.

This has been going on for over 4 years now. Why is it taking so long?
I personally don't think anything will come of it.
