Employers Required to Include Employee’s Date of Hire on New Hire Reports Starting 01/16/2012

Effective January 16, 2012, employers will be required to include an employee’s date of hire when submitting a new hire report. The date of hire is the date an employee first performed services for pay. This requirement was enacted in Section 802 of the Claims Resolution Act of 2010 (CRA; Pub. L. No. 111-291) signed into law by President Obama on December 8, 2010.

The South Dakota New Hire Reporting Center currently accepts and processes the date of hire when it is included on new hire reports. Employers must submit rehires with the most recent date of hire.
