New Hiring Reporting
Laws and Rules
The federal Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (Pub.L. 104-327) and South Dakota Codified Law (SDCL) 25-7A-3.3 require employers to report certain information on their newly hired employees. If you wish to read more about the federal law, refer to Compilation of Social Security Laws, Title IV Grants to States for Aid and Services to Needy Families with Children and for Child-Welfare Services, Part D—Child Support and Establishment of Paternity.
Employers are required to use the same FEIN number when reporting new hires to the New Hire Reporting Center as they use when reporting Quarterly Wage Reports. See SDCL 61-1-3.
Effective January 16, 2013, employers are required to also include the 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. Employers must submit rehires with the most recent date of hire.
