How Do I Register As An Employer With The Unemployment Insurance Division?

An employer must file Form UC­1, Report to Determine Liability Under the Hawaii Employment Security Law with the Unemployment Insurance Division within twenty days after initially hiring an employee. Determination of liability will be made and a subject employer will be assigned an identification number. The DOL number will be assigned only after definite employment has been confirmed with the mandatory filing of Form UC­BP­5(A), "Report of New Hire(s)".

Employers must report each new hire within five working days from the date the employee began work. If you presently have employees, complete this form and submit the original together with the Form UC­1. Additional report forms will be mailed to you after the DOL number has been assigned. Your quarterly tax reporting forms will also be mailed to you after confirming your liability.
