Like other employees, seasonal workers have to be assessed to see if they qualify for automatic enrolment into a workplace pension. Assessing these types of staff can take more time because of varying hours and earnings. Employers who know their staff will be working for them for less than three months can use postponement. This postpones the legal duty to assess staff for three months.
During this postponement period, employers will not need to put staff into a pension unless they ask to be put into one. The Pensions Regulator has an online tool to help employers who have seasonal or temporary workers. Please see here for more information – view here.
