Employers must report new hires to the Utah Department of Workforce Services’ new-hire registry. Until July 1, 2012, new hires include employees who are rehired after an unpaid absence of at least six consecutive weeks; effective July 1, 2012, new hires include employees who are rehired after separation from employment for at least 60 consecutive days.

New-hire reports must contain the following information:
– Each employee’s name, address, and Social Security number;
– Effective July 1, 2012, the date on which such employee first performs paid labor or services for employers; and
– Employers’ name, address, and federal employer identification number.

Multistate employers can designate and report to a single state where they have employees if they notify the federal Department of Health and Human Services of the designated state in writing and submit new-hire reports magnetically or electronically.
