I tried running the sample code from UI Shell - ADF UI Patterns - Dynamic Tabs UI Shell Template Functional UI Pattern.
It works fine on other browsers except IE7
On IE7, I get the tab content and header overlapped as in the screenshot

My client has IE7 deployed organisation wide. Is IE7 compatibility a known issue. Is there any work around ?
I don't know if there are known issues with IE 7, but as documented in http://oracle.com/systemrequirements IE 8.x is he lowest supported version of Internet Explorer for Fusion Applications.
Your sample code is based on the non-Fusion Apps UI shell, so for that the generic ADF system requirements would apply:
IE7 appears to be supported for that. The better place to find out about known issues with the ADF UI shell and IE 7 wold be in the generic ADF forums:
