What about pensions auto-enrolment?

Advice from the Pensions Regulator says that where an employee changes employer as a result of a transfer, the transferee is responsible for assessing the worker with effect from the transfer date and where appropriate, automatically enrolling them. In effect, they are treated as a new joiner for that employer.
