SFA Fortnightly Update

Dear Member, 


Welcome to the latest edition of the SFA Newsletter.


This week, the Department of Enterprise publishes a draft bill on statutory sick pay, and Government approves the drafting of a law that will protect employees' tips


Read about the recent Labour Court case regarding unfair dismissal on disability grounds. We also share important advice from the Credit Review Office. 


Take a look at Budget 2022 and the impact it will have on small businesses, and read up on online shopping fraud with Europol.


See our article on state-backed low interest rate loans for working capital and investment purposes available for eligible SMEs.


Finally, make sure you apply to MentorsWork, our free business-support programme with Skillnet Ireland before 30 November, and don't forget to check out our latest 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 1602 or e-mail: sven@sfa.ie or tweet: @SFA_Irl or visit our website.


Kind regards, 

Sven Spollen-Behrens
