New Hire Reporting

Prompt and thorough reporting of new hires will result in reducing fraudulent unemployment and workers' compensation payments. Timely submissions of new hire data will allow the Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development to match this data against its active unemployment claimant files and either stop payments or recover erroneous payments. 

Employers must report their newly hired or rehired employees within 20 days of the date they are hired.
