The Pensions Regulator “will use their powers” on “unacceptable” auto enrolment non-compliance.
The Pensions Regulator has said that they will not hesitate to use its powers if employers fail to comply with their auto enrolment duties.
New Pensions Regulator chairman Mark Boyle said:
“We expect that as the number of employers subject to the duties goes up we will see more non-compliance. As we deal with smaller employers, we will see more who, despite our message to prepare early, leave it too late or do not comply at all.
“This type of non-compliance is not acceptable, and we will use our powers, including compliance notices, fixed penalties and escalating penalties where appropriate.”
