If you’re on a zero hours contract, you’ll need to be assessed on your age and how much you’re paid (just like anyone else). Your employer might postpone the date you’ll be put into a workplace pension for a period of up to 3 months and if so:
- If your contract of employment ends before the end of the postponement period, your employer doesn’t have to auto-enrol you at the end of your contract. However, you can contact your employer and ask to join the scheme during this period.
- If you’re re-employed, your employer can use postponement again, but only if any previous postponement period has finished.
