Pensions
UK Government laws regarding pension provision have changed to help workers save for their retirement. This legislation places a duty of care on organisations and recruitment agencies to automatically enrol their temporary workers into a workplace pension scheme - providing the worker meets certain criteria as an ‘eligible job holder’. This is known as “auto-enrolment”.

Randstad has a legal requirement to automatically enrol its eligible jobholders into a qualifying workplace pension scheme from.

What this means for you?
Provided you are an eligible jobholder, you will be automatically enrolled into the pension fund and a 1% deduction will be made from your weekly pay. A contribution to your pension fund will be made by Randstad.

You can choose to opt out if you do not want to invest in a pension scheme. However, you may want to take independent advice on this.

If you opt out one month after entry; this is known as the “cooling off” period. In this case, you will receive a full refund of contributions. However, if you opt out after one month, you will waive the refund of contributions.

If you assignment ends with Randstad, as you will no longer be paid by Randstad, then no further deductions for your pension will be made by Randstad. However, you will not be eligible for any refunds in line with this legislation. Should you start working for another company or agency then the law states that you should be enrolled into their pension scheme when you join (subject to qualifying periods and the same eligibility criteria discussed at the start of this document).
