The article reports on research from the Institute of Directors which has found evidence that some small firms plan not to comply with their automatic enrolment duties. The Institute of Directors surveyed 1,327 of its members to find how employers are responding to the changes. The procedure of auto-enrolment began in September 2012, under which the largest employers in Great Britain are legally required to offer staff a pension scheme which meets the Government's minimum standards.
