The Pension Regulator (TPR) have updated their Auto Enrolment guidance in line with challenges faced by employers during the COVID-19 pandemic. They have confirmed and understand that business has changed but their automatic enrolment duties haven’t.
The update confirms that they will take a proportionate and risk-based approach towards enforcement decisions, in light of these challenging times, with the aim of supporting both employers and savers.
The guidance has been updated on the 8th of December to include information on nominating a contact for TPR to send important information to, should the normal contact be unavailable due to restrictions or possibly furlough.
