Do I have to enrol my employees into a workplace pension scheme?

Yes, if they are aged between 22 and State Pension age and earn at least £10,000 per year.

What if my employees don’t want to join our employer workplace pension?

If they fit the above criteria they legally have to be automatically enrolled, however they can opt out.

How do my employees opt out of the scheme?

By contacting the pension provider, if they opt out within a month they will get back any money already paid in.
