Auto Enrolment Spot Checks

June 28th, 2017

The Pensions Regulator (TPR) is to begin carrying out spot checks in Birmingham to ensure employers are complying with their automatic enrolment duties.

Inspection teams will visit dozens of businesses in and around the city to check that qualifying staff are being given the workplace pensions they are entitled to.

The move is part of a nationwide enforcement campaign which began in London in April to ensure employers are meeting their automatic enrolment duties correctly.

Birmingham is to become the third area to be the focus of the short-notice inspections. TPR carried out checks in Greater Manchester earlier this month.

The checks will also help TPR understand whether employers are facing any unnecessary challenges that we can help them with, such as by improving our systems.
