If you are an employer with employees in two or more states AND you will transmit the required reports magnetically or electronically, Federal law allows you to comply with the new hire reporting requirement by exercising one of the following options:
Option #1: Send the new hire reports to the State Directory of New Hires of the state in which each newly hired employee works.
Option #2: Designate one state in which any employee works and transmit ALL new hire reports to the State Directory of New Hires of that state. You must notify the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in writing of your choice to report to only one state and identify the chosen state.
If you choose Option #2, please complete HHS Multistate Employer Notification form found at http://www.acf.hhs.gov/programs/css/resource/multistate-employer-registration-form-instructions.
