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


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

New Hire Reporting

In Oklahoma, you are required to report hew hires to the Oklahoma Employer New Hire Reporting System

All newly-hired employees must be reported to OESC within 20 days of being hired if you are reporting by mail or fax.

Employers who report electronically must report at least twice monthly, within at least 20 days of being hired. Date started to work is defined as the first day services are performed by the employee for a wage. 

Recalled or Rehired employees: These employees are reported by completing the same information as required for new hires. These are employees for whom a new W-4 is not required.

Check "recalled" on the form to indicate this employee had previously worked for your company, was laid-off, and then rehired or recalled. You should re-report these employees as "recalled" using the return-to-work-date after layoffs end. OESC will eventually be using this data to ensure recall credits for applicable employers. 

You'll need the following information for each new hire:

  • Employee name, address and Social Security Number

  • Employer name, address, and Federal Employer Identification Number

  • Date Started to Work

  • State of Hire

The following items are also being requested to avoid future paperwork being sent to you:

  • Employer's Oklahoma Employer Account Number (Assigned by OESC)

  • Employee's Occupation and Salary

  • Employee's Date of Birth

  • Is Dependent Health Insurance Available?

  • Is this employee still employed with your company?

  • Recall (Rehire) Date

You can report new hires in several ways. The fastest way is through the Oklahoma Employer New Hire Reporting System. Once there, click FIRST TIME USER? CLICK HERE
