What is New Hire Reporting? I just hired a nanny.


What is new hire reporting exactly? The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act of 1996 requires that all employers to file a new hire report on all newly hired workers and re-hired workers within a specified period, generally 2 weeks, or incur a financial penalty. Each state has designated an agency responsible for the collection of data and enforcement of the requirement.

This reporting expedites enforcement of child support orders and protects unemployment and other benefits programs from fraud and abuse.

The new hire report typically includes the name, address and Social Security Number of the newly hired (or re-hired) worker, as well as the name, address and Federal Employer Identification Number (FEIN) and state unemployment account number of the employer.
