Is there a clause to opt out of pension plan's auto enrolment?

As an employer you cannot opt out of your responsibility to automatically enroll eligible employees into an automatic enrolment scheme. Opting out only refers to your employees’ right to opt out of ongoing  pension scheme membership. They can opt out of active pension scheme membership during the predefined opt-out period by giving an “opt-out notice” to their employer. Eligible employees can opt out after they’ve been automatically enrolled. Entitled workers who have asked to join a scheme do not have the right to opt out.
