Auto-enrolment was introduced from 1 October 2012. From this date (subject to the employer's own staging date), all 'workers' were auto-enrolled into a qualifying pension scheme without any active decision on their part to join the qualifying pension scheme. 

Most larger employers will have already completed their first auto-enrolment exercise, however some smaller employers will soon be approaching their 'staging date'. To find your staging date please follow the link below: 

The Berkshire Pension Fund has produced an Auto-enrolment guide for employers which can be downloaded.
