The Pensions Regulator Names And Shames Employers

26 May 2017

tpr-court.jpg The Pensions Regulator have taken the bold step to now publish the names of employers who have been taken to court over workplace pension non-compliance. The details of every organisation that it has secured a court order against has now been published on its website, including the name of the organisation involved, its postcode as well as the amount paid in fines.

Charles Counsell, TPR's Executive Director of Automatic Enrolment, said:

"Employers who wilfully refuse to become compliant should be in no doubt that we will take enforcement action against them, as these lists show."

"Automatic enrolment is not an option, it is the law. Allowing some employers to get away with non-compliance is not fair to the employees who are denied the workplace pensions they are entitled to and is not fair on the vast majority of businesses who have taken the time to meet their responsibilities."

"To date, we have only had to bring court proceedings against a tiny proportion of employers, but every court case is one too many – and one that employers can easily avoid by becoming compliant."
