Employer New Hire Report

Use the New Hire Report to report newly hired and rehired employees to the Employer New Hire Reporting Operations Center in the Texas Office of the Attorney General. It must be reported within 20 days of the employee's first working day. 

Employees are not considered new hires if they were previously employed or previously employed but separated from prior employment for at least 60 consecutive days. 

Employees are considered rehired if they were previously employed but separated from prior employment for more than 60 consecutive days.

After running the report for the first time, the system reports only new employees and employees returning to work after a 60-day separation. 

New hire reporting helps state agencies detect and prevent fraud and recover overpayments.
