New employee protections have come into place that apply to all employers, regardless of their staging date. It is not

The auto-enrolment regulations are complex and do not fit well with other pension regulations. Some amendments have now been made to align existing regulations with duties such as the disclosure regulations [which govern when a pension scheme must provide certain information to members].
However, there is still a general disconnect, which makes advising [organisations] more challenging.
