Small employers across Bristol are to get a helping hand as they prepare for major pension reforms that will see most workers enrolled into a workplace pension scheme.
The free event in Horfield - sponsored by local news publishers Local Voice Network - for small employers in the area on April 10, 2017 to get the message out that automatic enrolment into workplace pensions applies to them and to help them get to grips with what they need to do. An expert from The Pensions Regulator will be attending to provide specialist guidance for local employers.
It is being run by Bristol North West MP Charlotte Leslie, who will be in attendance
Whether you're a shopkeeper, a plumber or employ someone in the home, if you employ at least one person you are an employer and you have certain legal duties.
Employers are invited to come along to Orchard School bristol in Horfield, BS7 0XZ at 1pm on Monday, April 10th to learn more about preparing for automatic enrolment and to pose questions to pensions experts.
Any small employers in Bristol that would like to attend should complete the booking form. The event is FREE and there will be refreshments provided
Failing to comply with the new duties could lead to a fine, so it’s important that each employer understands what they have to do and when. This event will help small employers understand what’s required of them and get automatic enrolment right for their workers.
There will also be information on what to consider when choosing a pension scheme, making the most of payroll software and how to tell your staff about workplace pensions.
