Important Changes to New Hire Reporting

May 2012

All employers with business operations in New Jersey must report certain information about employees who are hired or re-hired to work in New Jersey. The information is used principally to help locate parents who have failed to make child-support payments.

The US Trade Adjustment Assistance Extension Act of 2011 amends section 453A(a)(2) of the Social Security Act and the definition of a Newly Hired Employee for New Hire Reporting purposes.  A Newly Hired Employee is now defined as a person who has not previously been employed by the employer or was previously employed by the employer but has been separated from such prior employment for at least 60 consecutive days.  This includes an employee returning from an unpaid leave of absence.  Reports must be submitted within 20 days after the employee is hired, re-hired or returns to work (or twice a month if reporting electronically).

The new reporting requirement is effective April 21, 2012.
