Helping IoD members comply with automatic enrolment into pension saving - 13 May 2014
On 13 May the IoD, in conjunction with Scottish Widows, held a seminar on implementing automatic enrolment pensions. During 2014 and 2015 many small- and medium-sized employers must automatically enrol their employees into a pension scheme. Small employers whose staging dates are in 2015 should also be planning now to fulfil their new duties. An expert speaker panel, including Malcolm Small, the IoD’s senior adviser on pensions policy, and Charles Counsell, executive director of the Pensions Regulator, provided guidance on the topic.
