As unemployment rates continue to decline, the Rhode Island New Hire Reporting Directory would like to take an opportunity to provide employers with an important reminder of their responsibility to report all hired and rehired employees. Newly hired and/or rehired employees must be reported within 14 days of their hire date, whether they are considered full-time, part-time, or temporary employees.
Rehired employees are employees who return to work after sixty (60) days, or more, of being laid off, furloughed, separated, or granted a leave without pay or terminated from employment. Recalled employees include anyone who remains on the payroll during a break in service or gap in pay and then returns to work. For example, teachers, substitutes, seasonal workers, etc.
