PART 1 - Introduction to New Hire Reporting

Unemployment Insurance Handbook for Employers (UCB-201-P)
Section 5 - New Hire Reporting

New Hire is a national program required by both state and federal laws. It is designed to locate non-custodial parents with child support obligations.

New Hire information will also be used in the administration of Social Security and public assistance programs. This information will also be used to detect and prevent fraud within Unemployment Insurance and Worker's Compensation.

Accurate and timely reporting by employers is essential for the continued success of the program.
