This is a good question. Employers must automatically enrol any employees who fit the following criteria:
Any employee that earns below £520 a month (gross) or £120 a week (gross) has a right to join, but isn’t automatically enrolled.
For those earning a monthly gross amount between £520 and £833, they have the right to opt in.
Entitled workers who meet minimum standards have the right to join a workplace pension scheme. But this scheme doesn’t have to be the same as eligible jobholders and non-eligible jobholders. It can be a personal pension or another type. Employers don’t have to make contributions for entitled workers, but they can if they wish.
