Whom Do I Report?

You must file a report on all newly hired and rehired employees. A rehired employee is one who is returning to work for you after a permanent separation, or one who is returning to work after a 26 consecutive week break in service for any reason. Rehires also include those seasonal employees who return to work after a break in service of 10 weeks or more, and for whom, at the time of the layoff, you were under an order to withhold wages.

You must also file a New Hire Report for an independent contractor if the contract for services is with an individual or sole proprietor, and you expect reimbursement for services to meet or exceed $2,500 in a calendar year's time.
