Gig economy employers should comply with auto-enrolment obligations

Gig economy employers must “voluntarily” and “promptly” comply with their auto-enrolment obligations under the Pensions Act 2008, otherwise the Pensions Regulator has warned that they could face enforcement action.

The Pensions Regulator has praised Uber for recently stating it will offer a pension scheme to all of its eligible UK drivers. Uber’s initiative follows on from the Supreme Court’s ruling in February 2021 that Uber drivers have the status of a “worker” and therefore qualify for auto-enrolment into a workplace pension.
