9 May 2009 United Kingdom NEST/Personal Accounts, Pension Reform, Part-time, Self-employed and Contract Workers
According to a report by the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), the Government has failed to consider the consequences of the 2012 pension reforms on temporary agency workers and the UK's flexible labour market. The report argues that temporary workers, who are twice as likely as permanent staff to opt-out of auto-enrolment, should not have to go through the process of opting-out every time they start a new assignment. BCC also warns that the administrative costs of doing this are so high that temporary workers could be priced out of the market altogether as agencies pass on the extra costs to their clients.
