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

New Hire Reporting

In Hawaii, you are required to report all new hires to the Child Support Enforcement Agency (CSEA).

Employers must report the new employee information to the CSEA as soon as possible and no later than 20 days from the employee’s first day of work. The term "new hire" means an employee who has not previously been employed by the employer or was previously employed by the employer but has been separated from the prior employment for at least sixty consecutive days. 

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

  • Employee's Name

  • Employee's Social Security Number

  • The date services for remuneration were first performed by the employee. This may be the same date as the date of hire.
