Malta Employers' Association
The Malta Employers' Association (MEA) is a constituted body which brings together employers from all sectors of industry and commerce in Malta. It is, in effect, the association of employers, formally registered as such under the Employment and Industrial Relations Act (2002).
The principal purpose for which the Association was created was to represent employers and their needs at a national and global level. This is done through social dialogue with other social partners, government and international bodies. Another important pillar of the Association is to educate the business community and keep abreast with the latest developments. This is done through the delivery of courses, info sessions and seminars, done in collaboration with experts in the field.
The Association also carries a number of research assignments from time-to-time, on topics related to employment such as wage inflation, usage of sick leave, and family-friendly measures.
