Organisations that are members of Ibec have access to an Ibec advisor who together with our knowledge centre and legal services provide comprehensive advice on the interpretation of employment legislation, best practice human resource / industrial relations management and a range of resources from legal guidance notes, webinars and podcasts, plus numerous HR and Sector briefings.

Comprehensive support to member's HR queries

In the last year, we have successfully supported members in over 725 remote and in person hearings at the WRC and the Labour Court. Pay negotiations have been a significant feature of local negotiations this year and the team has successfully concluded numerous deals addressing the competitiveness issues facing our members.

The team has managed a total of 1,975 employment cases in key areas of negotiations and representation. Unlike a professional services firm, we do not charge members on a case-by-case basis. Nor do we charge for meetings, drafting documentation, reviewing policies or representation.

The team has also engaged directly with Government, Joint Oireachtas Committees, public consultations and made issue specific Ibec submissions to influence the balanced introduction of proposed and pending employment legislation.
