.@StefanCross1, key lawyer in many high profile equal pay cases, says there remains a big challenge to increase access to justice in discrimination cases. #JusticeEdinburgh
.@StefanCross1: By 2022 there will be around £1.5bn paid out in Scotland through equal pay cases - arguably one of the biggest redistributions of wealth in history. If it hadn’t been for no win no fee lawyers working on the cases there would have been no victories.
.@StefanCross1: between 1997 and 2005 no discrimination cases for women were brought as trade unions had refused to take them. Part of the historic injustice behind the unequal pay cases. #JusticeEdinburgh
.@StefanCross1: Same with major private supermarket cases - the trade union wouldn’t take on the case until Leigh Day offered ‘no win, no fee’ support. #JusticeEdinburgh
.@StefanCross1: Have lawyers become too rich to care? Lists London firms where partners are earning £1.5m a year. Adds top partners in Scotland are also racking it in. Does this matter? #JusticeEdinburgh
.@StefanCross1: was speaking to someone earning £135k a year who could not afford to take an equal pay case. Expensive legal sector can price people out of claims. #JusticeEdinburgh
