Employment Terms & Conditions

JIB membership places your employment practices on a sound and legal footing, without the need to pay legal costs.

Employment Advice & Dispute Resolution

As a new member, we'll help you to set up the terms & conditions for your staff. We also provide a free dispute resolution service, should you need it, with a very high record of resolving disputes and avoiding legal and tribunal costs.In 2016, 37 cases were referred to the JIB for mediation, with none of them proceeding to a formal hearing.

Healthcare & Personal Insurances

The JIB Benefit Scheme has a large membership base, which enables the JIB to provide its private medical insurance and personal insurances package at £14.70 (Jan 2017 rate) per operative per week.

The Benefits Scheme includes:

  • Private medical cover, including pre-existing conditions
  • Health screening
  • JIB sick pay in addition to statutory sick pay
  • Death benefit
  • Accidental death benefit
  • Permanent and total disability benefit
  • Employee assistance helpline

The Benefits Scheme is part of the terms & conditions for operatives. A separate scheme is also available to office based owners, directors and staff.

Financial support for training

Up to £625 training support per year per course is available, through the JIB Skills Development Fund, for each of your operatives or apprentices who wish to further their skills.

Unique access to new business

It's a condition of JIB membership that members only employ fellow JIB companies when subcontracting electrical work. This provides members looking for new work with a unique opportunity to promote their skills to fellow members.
