Clio SpringerEditor's message: Unless your organisation is one of the small employers that has not yet reached its staging date, you are likely to be caught by the pensions auto-enrolment requirements by now. If you are a large employer, you may already have gone through, or be about to go through, the process of re-enrolling eligible workers into a qualifying pension scheme.

Whether or not your workers are eligible to be automatically enrolled into a pension scheme depends on their age and earnings. Other workers may ask to be voluntarily enrolled into the scheme.

The pension scheme that you offer has to meet minimum requirements for pensions auto-enrolment purposes. There are also a number of duties related to pensions auto-enrolment. For example, you must provide information to your workers about their rights and make a declaration of compliance to the Pensions Regulator.
