Employer New Hire Reporting
Employer Frequently Asked Questions
Employer New Hire Reporting
Ark. Code Ann. 11-10-901 and 902 requires employers to report new hire information to the Arkansas Employment Security Department. State agencies will use this information to discover and stop unemployment insurance fraud, worker's compensation fraud and other types of public assistance fraud. The State will also use new hire reports to locate noncustodial parents who owe child support in Arkansas. The New Hire Reporting program is a confidential and secure program that receives and processes data regarding new employees.
Employers are the critical link both in locating noncustodial parents and in withholding income from their paychecks. No other child support collection method is as successful as income withholding. Not only does this law help the children, it also helps taxpayers. By promptly reporting new hires, employers help taxpayers save millions of dollars because families that receive child support are less likely to require public assistance. More importantly, employers help children get the support they deserve.
All Arkansas employers (private, nonprofit and government agencies) must report all employees who live or work in Arkansas. Out of state employers who hire employees who work in Arkansas must also report. Multi-state employers must report newly hired employees to the State in which they are working or they may select one State to which they report all new hires. The employer must report any employee who fills out a W-4 form whether full-time, part-time or student worker. This information must be reported within 20 days of hiring an employee.
The employee information that must be reported:
- Employee's name
- Employee's address
- Employee's Social Security Number
- Employer's name
- Employer's address
- Employer's Federal Employer Identification Number
Reports must be sent to:
