The law on workplace pensions has changed. Every employer with at least one member of staff now has new duties, including enrolling those who are eligible into a workplace pension scheme and contributing towards it. This is called automatic enrolment.
The new duties have been gradually phased in since 2012; with the larger employers going first. But duties for small and micro employers with up to 49 workers commence from 1st June 2015.
Ideally, you should allow up to 12 months to prepare because as the smaller employers start to begin their duties, so the volume significantly increases. It is estimated that at the peak, well over 200,000 employers will be required to comply with the new regulations in one quarter alone.
