At Christianson, we are always looking out for small businesses and making sure they have all the information they need to keep their minds at ease. Lately, we have heard questions surrounding MN New Hire Reporting so we wanted to give you some tips!
First, have you hired a new employee recently? Did you know you need to report the new hire with the State of Minnesota?
The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 requires ALL employers to report newly hired or re-hired employees to a state directory within 20 days of their hire date. New hire reporting speeds up the child support income withholding order process and expedites the collection of child support.
What new hire information needs to be reported?
As an employer you are required to report the following information:
- Employer Federal ID Number
- Name of Employer
- Employer Address
- Name of Employee (First, Middle, Last)
- Employee Address
