The law on workplace pensions has changed and now, Under the Pensions Act 2008, every employer in the UK must put certain staff into a pension scheme and contribute towards it. This is called 'automatic enrolment'.
Whether you're a hairdresser, an architect or employ a personal care assistant, if you employ at least one person you are an employer and you have certain legal duties.
Auto enrolment will see businesses become legally obliged to offer a pension scheme to its employees by 2018.
So how are British employers fairing so far when it comes to implementing the scheme?
