New Hire Reporting Requirements
What is new hire reporting?
Wyoming Statute § 27-1-115 and the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) of 1996, 42 U.S.C. 653a, requires all employers and labor organizations to report newly hired, re-hired and temporary employees to a state new hire directory within 20 days of their hire date.
Why must I report?
Employers serve as key partners in ensuring fi nancial stability for many children and families. New hire reporting speeds up the child support income withholding order process, expedites collection of child support from parents who change jobs frequently, and quickly locates non-custodial parents to help in establishing paternity and child support orders. New hire reporting helps children receive the support they deserve.
Who must report?
Employers and labor organizations doing business in the State of Wyoming must report all newly hired employees. A new employee is considered any individual who is eligible for federal income tax withholding from wages and provides a service to the employer. This includes part-time, re-hired or re-called, and temporary employees.
When do I report?
Wyoming Statute § 27-1-115 requires all employers to submit their new hire reports within 20 days after the employee is hired or re-hired or returns to work. Employers who submit reports magnetically or electronically shall submit the reports in two monthly transmissions not more than sixteen days apart.
