In 2017, the High Court ruled that Morrisons is legally responsible for the data breach of its employees’ payroll information by a disgruntled ex-employee.

In 2018, the supermarket chain appealed the High Court’s judgment, thereby attempting to stop employees from claiming any form of compensation or legal recourse.

However, the Court of Appeal dismissed Morrisons’ appeal on 10th October 2018.

Q:Why do I need to make a claim before 6th April 2019?

A: Due to recent changes in the law, from 6th April 2019, success fees for privacy and breach of confidence cases are no longer going to be recoverable from the responsible party. This means that solicitors representing claimants will be required to take a portion of the compensation awarded.

Q: Why should I make a claim for the Morrisons data leak?

A: A breach of confidential information or the misuse of personal information can lead to emotional and financial distress, due to the loss of control of your information and the risk of identity fraud. The experienced team at JMW works to secure substantial compensation for those who have been affected.

Q: What can I claim for when my data has been leaked?

A: If you have been affected by the Morrisons data leak, you can make a claim just for being a victim. Further compensation can be sought if the leak has impacted your life, for instance, caused any stress, worry and anxiety or had an effect on your social and domestic life.
