Transfer of Employment (Pension Protection) Regulations 2005 come into force

Implementation date: 6 April 2005

The Regulations introduce the requirements contained in the Pensions Act 2004, section 258. This section provides that, where there is a business transfer to which TUPE applies, and an employee has access to an occupational pension with employer contributions prior to the transfer, then the transferee employer must offer a transferred employee certain pension arrangements. The Regulations  can be viewed on the OPSI website.
