Hibou Odoo Suite Enterprise: State of Colorado: New Hire Reporting


The purpose of this documentation is to outline the processes and requirements associated with reporting new hires in the state of Colorado. 

New Hire Reporting

The reporting must take place within 20 calendar days after the date of hire or by the first regularly scheduled payroll following the date of hire, if such payroll is after the expiration of the 20-day period.

If reporting electronically, the employer must transmit twice per month, no fewer than 12 and no more than 16 days apart.

Rehired employees: If the employee returning to work is required to complete a new W-4 form, or has been separated from your employment for at least 60 consecutive days, you should report the individual as a new hire.

You will need the following information for each new hire:

  • Employee name

  • Address

  • Social Security Number

  • Date of birth

  • Date of hire—Date of hire is considered to be the first day that services are performed for wages by an individual.

  • Payroll address

  • Federal identification number (FEIN)
