I have a member of staff who wasn’t put into a pension scheme on my duties start date as he wasn’t earning enough. This month he worked overtime and he earnt over £833 but next month he will earn less than this. What do I do?

All staff earnings need to be assessed for automatic enrolment and these include wages, salary, bonus, commission and overtime, plus some statutory payments - and many of these may fluctuate each pay period.

You may have a member of staff who meets the earnings criteria on a one-off basis, as a result of a bonus or overtime. You can choose to delay putting them into a scheme (known as postponement) for up to three months.
