SFA E-Zine – The Tuesday Edition

Dear Member,   

In this week's e-zine, we bring you details of a recent case of a failure by an employer to investigate complaints which led to a successful constructive dismissal award of €29,000.

Each week in the SFA e-zine, we profile a different government support available to small businesses. In this edition, we focus on a 40% funding for lighting upgrades in your business premises.


We bring you details of the drafting of the Action Plan for Jobs 2018 which kicked off with ideas for small businesses. We also bring you a reminder from the Companies Registration Office on Annual Returns and details of the rates revaluation of all commercial and industrial properties which has now been completed.

Tune into our webinar on Thursday (14 September) on how to create a winning SFA Awards entry. There are limited places remaining for the 1 day Project Management course this Friday (15 September). Book your place to attend our next networking event which focuses on how to get the most from a flexible team on 27 September with Jason Sherlock, legendary Dublin footballer as the keynote speaker. Find details of a Promoting and Financing Energy Efficiency Conference taking place in Dublin on 28 September.

The disciplinary process is one of the topics which will be covered at the upcoming SFA Employment Law Conferences taking place in Limerick on 20 September and in Dublin on 9 October. Register your place for the SFA Annual Lunch 2017 taking place in the Mansion House on 10 November.  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 1602 or e-mail: sven@sfa.ie or tweet: @SFA_Irl or visit: www.sfa.ie.
