Pension Reforms: Automatic Enrolment (AE)

As a result of the Government's Workplace Pension Reforms employers have additional responsibilities to ensure employees have appropriate access to a workplace pension.  This involves the employer assessing their staff against set criteria in relation to age and earnings, and if they meet the set criteria, automatically enrolling them into an appropriate pension scheme.
