New Hampshire new-hire reporting requirements changing August 3

by Heather L. Devine

New Hampshire House Bill 440, which made several changes and clarifications to new-hire reporting requirements, goes into effect August 3. Most important, the new law requires employers to complete a new-hire report to the Department of Employment Security when a former employee has been rehired (regardless of whether she was laid off or terminated) and when an employee or independent contractor has been separated from her employment for 60 consecutive days or more (rather than 26 consecutive weeks under the prior version of the law).

The full text of HB 440 can be found here. Additional information on the change can be found here.
