As an employer, you will no doubt have heard of pension auto-enrolment and are hopefully considering how to prepare for it in your business.
Part of the process involves communicating with your workers, including giving them details of the scheme, the start date, and the contributions they will be expected to make. There are a number of key milestones on which these communications must be sent, in writing, to each employee.
If you have workers who are unable to read or are not fluent in English then you need to consider making an alternative provision for your communications. The obvious route is to arrange a meeting with workers to explain the scheme, the start date and so forth and to then speak to employees on a one-to-one basis to advise them of their individual details and requirements. We also recommend that you issue the written communications in the employees’ first language if you are able to.
