Legal / Contractual Support

We produce the industry accepted Schedule of Dayworks carried out incidental to contract work and ensures that these remain relevant and up to date. We provide advice for users on the interpretation of Schedules, which are available at reduced rates to members.

In recent years small and medium sized contractors have had to contend with a number of major changes to employment law, stemming both from the UK Government and Europe, which have had the potential to severely disrupt the way they run their business.

Through CECA’s research and lobbying activities, member firms are provided with prior warning of these changes and can contribute in efforts to minimize their impact upon their business. We can provide individual advice to members on employment/industrial relations issues, and seminars to CECA regions on employment issues.

CECA is represented on the Construction Industry Joint Council

(CIJC) through which wage negotiations are conducted and which agrees the content of the CIJC Working Rule Agreement with the relevant Trade Unions. It ensures that our members views and requirements are represented.
