Fee Structure and Membership Requirements

National federation members are national associations representative of the employment industry in their respective countries. Ordinarily, only one national or multinational association in each country or relevant geographic area can be a member of the World Employment Confederation. However, in extraordinary circumstances, the World Employment Confederation’s General Assembly may decide to grant membership to more than one association in order to achieve adequate representation of the industry at the national level.

All National Federations based in Europe are also part of the World Employment Confederation-Europe.

WEC National Federation Members are required to meet and uphold the conditions outlined in the WEC Code of Conduct.
