Employee Relations

In today’s world, it is essential that employers have access to reliable information on employment issues and employment law.  The ECA Employee Relations team is here to provide that help and advice for members companies.

The ECA Employee Relations team is at hand to give help and advice to member companies on employment law and good employment practice. Issues dealt with by the department cover many topics including: recruitment, dismissal and all the issues that arise during employment.  We provide this assistance, both to those who are in membership of the JIB – including representation at JIB dispute hearings – and those who are outside the JIB.  

In addition, we provide written guidance for the most common issues facing employers in managing their workforce which includes sample letters. These written guidance notes are available directly from the Employee Relations team and are also available on the 'Employment Guides' section of the website.

The Employee Relations team is responsible for working with employers’ negotiating team for both the staff agreement for the industry and the operatives’ agreement (JIB).  We also lobby on behalf of members on the impact of proposed and existing employment issues.
