The Pensions Act and Pension Contributions- Changes in 2011

Employers will soon need to auto-enrol their eligible staff in a compulsory pension plan, in accordance with the pensions reform announced by the government in 2008. Furthermore, by 2017 the equivalent to three per cent of every employee’s qualifying earnings must be added to the scheme as employer pension contributions. This is in addition to the employee’s own mandatory input of four per cent with a further one per cent in the form of tax relief.

Employer pension contributions

Employees aged between 22 and state retirement age are entitled to be auto-enrolled under the Pensions Act. However, they should have been at the company for at least three months and be earning at least 7,457 per annum. Contributions are deducted from the employee’s qualifying earnings, i.e. everything that they earn between 6,500 and 33,540 per annum. The employer has to re-enrol their employees every three years, although they are able to opt out of their compulsory pensions scheme within 30 days of this enrolment.

When does pensions reform come into effect?

Depending on the size and age of the organisation, there are 43 different staging dates at which the Pensions Act will come into effect. These vary from October 2012 to September 2017, so certain businesses will need to begin preparing as soon as possible. Peninsula can provide businesses with bespoke advice as to when they should implement pensions changes.

How employers can prepare for the Pensions Act

The most pressing consequence of the Pensions Act is that every UK employer will at some stage need to change their staff terms and conditions. To allow for employee and employer pension contributions, any employment documentation including contracts of employment will have to be altered.

To ensure clients are ready for these changes, Peninsula provides bespoke employment documentation in addition to on-demand employment law advice. This can be obtained through the website, the Peninsula Online resource centre and the 24-hour hotline.

Peninsula will also be covering the Pensions Act, and what it means for employers, in its popular employment law seminars. Representatives from any business can take part in these seminars for free, and they are available across the country. Visit the site to find out more about a seminar or book your slot.

If you’re a member of the media and require any further information, would like to discuss case studies for a particular feature, or be included on our media contact list, feel free to contact Sammual-James McLoughlin, Head of Media, Press and Public Relations at Peninsula Business Services.

J. Walter Kennedy Citizenship Award For Pau Gasol

Los Angeles Lakers forward Pau Gasol won National Basketball Association’s Walter Citizenship Award. Gasol came across important crossroad where decided to pursue professional basketball or career in medical. His charity work with UNICEF and children’s hospital, his family is from medical back ground (Spanish).

What is Citizenship Award?

Being a good citizen is not given importance while you study in school or college. As a citizen responsibility is to exhibit good citizenship skills, productive to the country and caring for the society. Citizens respect others, respect others and also they respect the environment.

National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) and National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) together administer the American Citizenship Award.

This award is an attractive lapel pin that is presented to any student in elementary, middle, high school, special events or recognition banquets. This will help inspire enthusiastic school spirit, strengthen self-esteem, building responsible and knowledgeable citizens and also volunteerism.

There is not certain rule or regulation that who should get American Citizenship Award.

– Services in school or community

– Positive attitude toward classmates, school and community

– Understanding civic responsibility

– Strengthening the character to do what is right.

”It’s a great honor for any player to receive,” Gasol said. ”It should be an honor for any player to have the opportunity to give back and to make the community better, be a role model to all the other kids and people. I think it’s very important when you have that opportunity, you take advantage of it. You maximize it.” Over past seven years Gasol has travelled with UNICEF to raise awareness on health care for children, program related to nutrition and also education.

Gasol’s father was medical administrator and his mother was physician. Pau was born in Barcelona; he took pre-med program as a teenager, but gave up his studies when his basketball career took off.

Gasol said. ”To me, that’s above and beyond basketball. Obviously, basketball has allowed me to have these opportunities, and that’s why I feel so fortunate, but to me it’s much stronger, much more powerful than the basketball game.”

Pau has released iBook about benefiting UNICEF in three different languages. He also is planning for another project with UNICEF once he finishes London Olympics.

Last year it was another Los Angeles Lakers player Ron Artest to win J. Walter Kennedy. He got this award for his work in mental health awareness, now he is known as Metta World Peace.
