Employers – are you meeting your workplace pension automatic enrolment obligations? If not it could prove costly.
- On May 15 2019, TPR instigated another round of data-led checks to identify non-compliance, and these will last throughout the summer.
- Refusal to provide information or obstruct an inspector is a criminal offence. Non-compliance may result in fines or even court action.
- Employers have a duty to automatically enrol workers between 22 and state pension age, who earn in excess of £10,000 a year (although workers may choose to opt out).
- Employers must complete a declaration of compliance and submit this online through TPR’s online service.
