The National Pensions Savings Scheme (NPSS) provides a supplementary personal pension for all employees who choose not to opt out. If they do not opt out, their employer is obligated to pay a contribution. The article considers the employment effect of the increase in labour costs implied by the NPSS. It shows how this employment effect is likely to be greatest for small firms since few of them have any supplementary pensions of the quality that is required. The negative employment effect will be reduced to the extent that there is non-compliance or opt-out, but if this occurs, the purpose of extending pension coverage to employees on lower earnings will be defeated.
