When things change

Working part-time

If you’re working part time, you shouldn’t be treated any differently than a full-time employee doing the same job.

Working part-time doesn’t mean that you should be treated any differently than someone doing the same job, who works full-time. This means that you have the same rights to join your employer’s workplace pension scheme or to be automatically enrolled, provided that you are eligible to for this.

As your earnings as a part-time worker are likely to be lower than someone who works full-time, your pension benefits are also likely to be lower.

You can find out more about your rights as a part-time worker on the Government’s website, by clicking here.
