Definition of a Newly Hired Employee:

The Claims Resolution Act of 2010 (CRA) was signed into law by President Obama on December 8, 2010, and took effect on June 8, 2011. Section 802 of the CRA now requires employers to provide the date an employee first performed services for pay to the state New Hire Directory. Employers can input this information by using the existing Employees Date of Hire (Start date) field.

Date of Hire is Required:

Effective April 21, 2012, The Trade Adjustment Assistance Extension Act of 2011, signed October 21, 2011 by President Obama, amends section 453A(a)(2) of the Social Security Act. This amendment defines a newly hired employee as an employee who (i) has not previously been employed by the employer; or (ii) was previously employed by the employer but has been separated from such prior employment for at least 60 consecutive days.
