Discover the many advantages of corporate membership
Annual Corporate Membership of the Federation of International Employers (FedEE®) will give you immediate access to an unrivalled wealth of information, support and guidance specifically designed to reduce the risks and costs of operating as an employer on an international basis.

If you wish to obtain immediate access to our services then please call our UK Head Office on (+44) (0) 203 608 4412 or Cyprus Administrative Centre on +353 22256381 with your credit/debit card details. All transactions are handled for FedEE by “Secure Trading” in London and can be in pounds sterling, dollars or euros. Alternatively, you can pay on line through our eSHOP which is the most immediate way to commence your membership.
The small print
Our members are principally supported from our UK Office in central London and Administrative Centre in Nicosia, Cyprus. We also have a presence in Australia (in progress), Hong Kong and Boston, USA. Our primary language is English, but an increasing amount of data is being made available in Mandarin and we plan to cover more languages over time.
Membership is open to multinational enterprises — or those planning to go multinational — that have 150+ employees and have traded for at least two years (see ‘qualifying companies’ below). An application must originate from a named senior executive of the organization concerned, using a bone fide corporate internet domain. Requests for membership from recently launched, smaller and purely national employers will be considered on a case by case basis.
As a FedEE® Global Silver, Gold or Platinum member access will be given to your team located in all parts of your enterprise, including majority-owned subsidiary enterprises. Each user will be nominated by a principal HR or corporate counsel contact in the member company and have their own passwords to access FedEE® Global services. Once an established member in a silver, gold or platinum company a senior Executive in your organization will be able to apply for individual FedEE® Fellowship (F.FedEE) without any additional charge and, if they wish, attend our regular Fellowship meetings — where a wide range of HR matters are discussed ‘off the record’ and with no notes taken. Individual Fellowship is valid for as long as the company remains in corporate membership.
Your organization will also be able to display our membership logo on your company documentation, our membership plaque in your reception area and, on request, the FedEE® flag on company flagpoles – thus signifying your company’s standing as an established multinational operating to high HR professional standards.
FedEE® data is for internal use as an HR resource and not for providing services to third parties on either a commercial or noncommercial basis. If it is required for such purposes then potential users should contact us to discuss a special licencing arrangement.
We operate a 12-month legal training course for HR practitioners in multinational enterprises leading to the award of an Advanced Diploma in Multijurisdictional Employment Law and entitling graduates to use the job title “HR Counsel(TM)”. Please contact the FedEE Office or visit the FedEE website for a course brochure. Please note: Group bookings for the course attract an additional discount.
Payments are normally made by bank transfer (BACS), but If you wish for rapid access to our services you may do so by submitting payment by credit or debit card. We will either take card details over the telephone or send you a link to an individually customised ‘Secure Trading’ payment platform. No details are retained of payment cards, so there is no problem about ongoing deductions if you do not wish to renew at the end of your initial membership period.
A receipted invoice will be issued for all online, or bank transfer, payments on the same or next working day after payment takes place.
Billing is handled through our International Payment Centre operated by FedEE® Corporate Services Limited in Cyprus. This means that VAT is only chargeable to companies based in Cyprus. Thus the majority of applicants will not be charged VAT. If you are based in the EEA please inform us about your VAT/TVA registration number.
Qualifying enterprises include private sector companies, professional firms and public sector bodies (such as trade commissions, diplomatic missions and armed services) or voluntary sector bodies which operate internationally.
Membership is not open to trade unions, NGOs, political organisations, recruitment or HR consultants, HR outsourcing companies and other employer or business representative bodies.
Membership is subject to approval by our Membership Review Group – which meets each weekday. The membership fee includes complete access to all FedEE® Global services set out under the membership categories table – except for certain meetings/events/courses, electronic books and use of our legal helpline above the limit set out below.
Inclusive Legal Helpline
Corporate members in the Silver and Gold categories may make a designated number of enquiries on our legal helpline during their subscription period at no extra charge. Platinum members are entitled to unlimited enquiries – but subject to a fair usage policy. Bronze, Silver and Gold members may purchase a bundle of six legal helpline enquiries at a discounted flat rate. No charge will be made for enquiries concerning clarification about data on the FedEE® Global website, or enquiries to our customer service team.
