SFA E-zine – The Tuesday Edition

Dear Member, 


Welcome to this week's edition of our SFA e-zine.  Don’t we all wish the Leaving Certificate could go on for 2 months so we could hold on to summer for a little bit longer!


We have some excellent articles for you this week, one of them in particular is about reasonable accommodation in the workplace.  We also have an update on GDPR and the changes in how the DPC manages complaints and investigations.  


We are concerned about the new banded hours bill that is currently being drafted and issued a press release on Monday about this issue.  We will be sending a communication to all members about this topic, if you offer flexible working arrangements please ensure you read the communication. 


Last week we launched our SFA Affinity scheme last week and over the coming weeks we will be profiling one offer per week. This week we have the spotlight on DHL Express.  


There is still a short amount of time and a small amount of places left for our regional Business Connect event taking place in Abbott Diagnostics tomorrow.  It's free and open to both members and non-members.  Just register here.


In our supporting SME’s section today we are looking at the new workplace Innovation Toolkit that was launched last week, make sure to take some time to look at this new offering.


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 1602 or e-mail: sven@sfa.ie or tweet: @SFA_Irl or visit: www.sfa.ie.

Kind regards, 

Sven Spollen-Behrens
