SFA E-Zine – The Tuesday Edition

Dear Member,   

In this week's e-zine, we bring you details of a case where an employer was ordered to pay €34,000 due to a flawed redundancy procedure.

Each week in the SFA e-zine, we profile a different government support available to small businesses. In this edition, we focus on Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur - a €2 million investment fund for entrepreneurs aged 18-35. 

Find out more about the Low Pay Commission report which recommends a 30c increase in the minimum wage. We link to the Skillnets Annual Report and to the National Competitiveness Council publication on Ireland’s Competitiveness Scorecard 2017.


Book your place at the next SFA webinar taking place tomorrow (26 July) on government supports for small business. You can now buy your tickets for the SFA Employment Law Conferences taking place this year in Limerick on 20 September and in Dublin on 9 October. Take part in the SFA Village at the Your Business Live event on 17-18 October and book your seat for the SFA Annual Lunch 2017 taking place in the Mansion House on 10 November. Give your business the competitive edge by upskilling yourself and your staff through our upcoming training courses. We also provide a summary of recent press coverage


As always, we’d love to hear from you about any queries you may have, issues you wish to have raised with Government or other stakeholders and your ideas on how we can improve the business environment for us all. Please contact me on tel: 01 605 1626 or e-mail: linda.barry@sfa.ie or tweet: @SFA_Irl or visit: www.sfa.ie.


Kind regards, 

Linda Barry
