What is re-enrolment under the auto-enrolment pension provisions?

Employers are required to re-enrol eligible jobholders who previously opted out of the auto-enrolment pension scheme, automatically every three years. This is designed to ensure that jobholders who have opted out are forced to reconsider their decision on a regular basis. Once re-enrolled by his or her employer, a jobholder can choose to opt out of the scheme again.
