Employers who flout their automatic enrolment pension duties are being targeted with short-notice inspections by The Pensions Regulator (TPR). TPR is using data to pinpoint specific employers across the UK who are suspected of breaking the law, including those who fail to put staff into a pension scheme or who make no, or incorrect, pension contributions.

It is mandatory for employers to take part in the inspections – obstruction of an inspector and failing to provide information when required to do so are criminal offences. Non-compliance could also result in fines or court action.

The inspections will continue over the summer across the UK. Previous rounds of spot checks targeted employers by region, from at-risk business sectors and from random test samples – as well as employers where there was evidence of non-compliance. TPR will also be directly contacting other employers suspected of non-compliance by phone to validate the information held related to them meeting their duties, to ensure they are complying fully.
