As the Coronavirus pandemic continues, posing new challenges to the economy and small businesses...

the Federation of Small Businesses is on hand to provide the latest information and guidance on what support and options are available to help get you and your firm though this crisis.

In this latest webinar we will be looking at employment issues that are facing business owners across the UK. These issues range from the Government Job Retention Scheme, furloughing of staff, what this means for workplace pensions, what are the employers legal obligations and pay roll issues.

Our panel of guests include Tina McKenzie, a managing director of a recruitment and employment support business, Hannah Thomas of FSB Legal and Sam Baker from FSB Workplace Pensions.

We will also be joined by SGS who specialise in certification in occupational health & safety, and who will outline areas you must consider as an employer with regards to mental health & wellbeing and to formalise this with the adoption of ISO 45001.

You can send in your employment questions to the FSB team ahead of the live webinar, by using #FSBhelp on Twitter. Alternatively you can ask a question during the live broadcast.
