The pensions regulator may impose a fine of up to £50,000 on an employer that contravenes the prohibition against inducing opt-outs. They may also fine employers up to £5,000 for a breach of the recruitment conduct provisions. Cases of unfair dismissal and mistreatment can enforce their rights in an employment tribunal.
It's not all punishments and enforcement though. The Pensions Regulator is also issuing help to employers by publishing a letter template tool that will help employers provide accurate and practical information to their staff about enrolment on to an automatic pensions scheme.
