Glasgow now under the auto enrolment spotlight
11 August 2017
The Pensions Regulator (TPR) has begun carrying out spot checks in Glasgow to ensure employers are complying with their automatic enrolment duties.
Inspection teams will visit dozens of businesses in and around the city over the coming weeks to check 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. Inspections have also been carried out in Greater Manchester, Sheffield, Edinburgh and Birmingham.
The checks will help TPR understand whether employers are facing any unnecessary challenges that they can be assisted with, for example helping them get their systems in place. The checks will also highlight employers who have not taken the required steps to become or remain compliant, paving the way for enforcement action.
Visits will continue over the coming weeks in other towns and cities across the UK.
