Personal Assistant Employers are required to meet the requirements of the Pensions Act.
This includes making an initial assessment of your workforce and then regularly re-assessing them to see if their eligibility has changed; making statutory communications to your workforce and the Pension Regulator.
You will also be required to have a qualifying pension scheme available for eligible employees to either be automatically enrolled into or “opt in” to if they choose to do so. You can download SPAEN’s Guide to Pensions Auto-Enrolment for PA Employers by clicking here
