Thanks Ben. I am a volunteer worker on the PCC of St' Peter and Paul Church Olney and I am asking the question on their behalf so that we deal with our paid pt-time workers rights to pension (if any) legally. If it helps I have been on the PCC as a volunteer around 8 years, but as I said this is not about me it is mainly for our Church Administrator who has worked for us pt.-time since 2011. There are 2 others who have been with us since 2013. Does this help?
Can you give me some idea when I will be getting the answer?
I will re-phrase my question. So, the question is:
Currently a part-time employee earning less than £10k a year is not legally entitled to a pension from their employer. I believe the current government are bringing in legislation in 2017/18 to change this so that all Part-Timers will have pension rights from their employers. Is this correct? If so, briefly, what are the rules so that I can set things up properly for our Charity (SS. Peter and Paul Church, Olney). Also it is rumored that Pt-time employers, as part of this legislation, must register all their Part-time employees next month. Is this correct and if so register with whom?
Thank you Nicola. As I said to your colleague I am quite happy to wait for an answer. Having said this we have a PCC meeting in the 22 September where this issue will be on the agenda so I would appreciate an answer before then please.
Thank you in anticipation
