What is the definition of a worker for auto enrolment?

Resolution

An Individual aged between 16 and 74 inclusive:

Directors

Directors are only exempt from worker status if

  • they are a director of a one-person company – as soon as they employ someone else they have to be included in the AE process or
  • they are an office-holder. An office holder has no contract or service agreement in relation to their appointment, nor do they usually receive a salary or regular remuneration for their services. They may however, be paid a fee for their services or to cover their expenses.

Further details about directors and employment contacts can be found here.
