From the Pensions Regulator

ACT NOW!

The law on workplace pensions has changed.  Every employer with at least one member of staff must automatically enrol those who are eligible into a workplace pension scheme and contribute towards it.

The pensions regulator will send a series of communications about these new legal duties, so you need to nominate a member of staff to be the contact person by 30th April 2015.

Go to www.tpr.gov.uk/letter for all the details

If you fail to comply with your duties you could be fined and/or prosecuted
