ECS in-house invigilation and Card Discounts

JIB and ECA members are able to invigilate ECS Health, Safety & Environmental Assessments in-house which means not only a cost saving of £18 + VAT per assessment, but also bring time savings as your employees can simply come to your office rather than travel to an external assessment centre. Our calculator savings are based on £18 per assessment and a half day rate for an Approved Electrician at the National Standard rate.

JIB members receive a £12 (incl. VAT) discount on online card applications and renewals. These savings are automatically applied for members via the ECS Employer Portal.

Dispute Resolution

The JIB acts as an impartial 'go-between' when disputes arise, covering grievances on unfair dismissal, underpayments of wages, holiday pay and redundancy. Free to JIB members, this type of mediation can cost up to £800 per day from other providers. By using the JIB, the significant costs of Employment Tribunal can be avoided - an average one-day unfair dismissal case is now estimated to cost over £8,000.
