Auto-Enrolment – the new workplace pensions legislation

What is it?

Since October 2012, the law requires all employers to enrol eligible staff into a qualifying workplace pension scheme if they are not already in one. Both employer and employee will have to make contributions into the scheme.

The National Employment Savings Trust (NEST), a new, low cost, Government-backed pension scheme, is available for any employer to meet the regulations, but is just one of a number of solutions available.

Each employer will have been given a staging date by which they must implement Auto-Enrolment.

The impact on your company

You cannot ignore Auto-Enrolment. Its rules are complex and far-reaching and will affect all employers and many of their processes. Compliance will be challenging and fines for non-compliance could potentially be substantial.

Auto-Enrolment is not just about pensions. It is also about payroll, increased administration, data management, HR systems, employee communication and the considerable financial impact on your company. Preparation will require excellent project management and coordination. Its implementation will mean many employers will have to review their whole benefits programme.
