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

New Hire Reporting  

In Nebraska, you are required to report new hires to the Nebraska State Directory of New Hires

Nebraska Statute 48-2303 requires all employers to submit their new hire reports within 20 days after the employee is hired or re-hired. Employers wh submit reports magnetically or electronically shall submit the reports by two monthly transmissions if necessary, which are not less than 12 days or more than 16 days apart.

Re-hires or Re-called employees: Employers must report re-hires, or employees who return to work after being laid off, furloughed, separated, granted a leave without pay, or terminated from employment within 20 days of re-hire. Termination of employment does not include temporary separations from employment, such as an unpaid medical leave, an unpaid leave of absence, a temporary lay-off of less than 60 days in length, or an absence for disability or maternity.
