A MAJOR CATERING GROUP
We are representing a major catering group on various claims of alleged unfair discrimination based on race and for equal pay for work of equal value. Four employees of the company allege that African employees are discriminated against at the company, and that African employees are remunerated less than employees of other races occupying the same roles. The matter is important because of the potential financial impact if the claims are successful.
The employees are represented by the same attorney, so if any of the claims is successful there is a real risk of follow on or copycat claims. The company employs approximately nine thousand employees.
