Check Automatic Enrolment in Pensions for Temporary Staff
The Pension Regulator (TPR) is reminding all social care and support employers that if they employ temporary or seasonal staff over the winter, they must ensure they’re complying with their legal Automatic Enrolment (AE) pensions duties. Seasonal or temporary staff must be assessed individually every time they’re paid, including staff who work for a few days, a few weeks, or several months.
TPR is encouraging employers to read their guidance on employing seasonal or temporary staff which details the steps they need to take to assess and enrol staff into a pension scheme, as well as guidance on enrolling staff on irregular hours or incomes and staff whose hours and pay varies.
