A former HR Chief was dismissed after issues surrounding her pay and warning company leaders about gender disparities for men and women carrying similar roles – Sam Walker – raised a claim with Employment Tribunal and won.
Walker has not been given a decent yearly appraisal, which turned the case as “partially achieved” after the tribunal opposed her claims that her dismissal was discriminatory.
After following comparison of her salary to male counterparts at the company, she lodged claims over equal pay back in 2016 – HR Grapevine reported.
Walker has since told the Guardian: “The Co-op has been found wanting, and I want to see the organisation change as a result.
“Going through this process has also revealed to me that the law is fundamentally flawed and must change.
Having the chance to challenge pay discrimination is a significant opportunity for women. At the moment, very few women do it; most are completely shut out.
