The National Association of Local Councils (NALC) and the Society of Local Council Clerks (SLCC) on 23 October 2015 issued guidance in light of the significant changes to workplace pensions that have taken place.
The advice and guidance is exclusively available to members only of both national organisations.
The law on workplace pensions has changed. Every employer with at least one member of staff now has new duties. Staff that meet certain criteria must be put into a pension scheme and the employer (and employee) must make contributions into the scheme, unless the employee opts out. This is called automatic enrolment.
