The Company has been trading for about 6 months, do they have to offer things like company pension by law? What other things do I need to check to make sure they are following legislation?

Check on companies house re: directors.

They don't have to offer you a company pension by law - I think all they have to do is to offer access to a pension - that could be a stakeholder pension.

You could ask to see their interim accounts or cashflow forecast if you have concerns over stability - or their business plan?

How big is the company?

How long a company has been trading is irrelevant in terms of your employment rights. Have a browse through this section of directgov which gives an overview of all your employment rights.

In terms of pensions specifically, no employer is required to operate a company pension, however companies with 5 or more employees are required to at least give access to a basic stakeholder pension through their payroll.
