The Pensions Regulator* has revealed it is increasing its auto enrolment compliance checks on employers to make sure they are complying with all their workplace pensions duties. 

Spot checks on employers are being carried out as part of The Pensions Regulator’s (TPR) ongoing enforcement activity. Employers judged to be at risk of failing to meet their duties are being visited. The spot checks will be used to provide valuable insights into employer behaviour, investigate non-compliance issues – helping employers get back on track and taking enforcement action where necessary.

The inspections will also serve as a warning to employers that they cannot ignore the workplace pension and that deliberate non-compliance will not be tolerated.

Employers are given a short period of notice before the inspection and the spot checks will cover a range of business sectors.
