Even if you employ just one person, you must provide a workplace pension.
The law requires all employers to provide a workplace pension for certain staff. Find out how the change in law will affect you.
The law on workplace pensions has changed. Every employer with at least one member of staff now has new duties, including putting those who meet certain criteria into a workplace pension scheme and contributing towards it.
This is called automatic enrolment. It’s called this because it’s automatic for your staff – they don’t have to do anything to be enrolled into your pension scheme. But it’s not automatic for you. You need to take steps to make sure they’re enrolled.
There are a number of tasks that will need to be completed by your staging date, including assessing your workforce to see who’s eligible, choosing a pension scheme, and communicating to staff. To help you prepare use our automatic enrolment action planner to find out what you need to do and by when.
You need to tell us who’ll be responsible for managing the automatic enrolment process by nominating a contact. Over the coming months, we'll send help and guidance to this person.
