Section 3121.891 | Duty to make a new hire report.


(A) Except as provided in division (B) or (C) of this section, every employer shall make a new hire report to the department of job and family services regarding a newly hired employee or a contractor of a person who resides, works, or will be assigned to work in this state to whom the employer anticipates paying compensation.

(B) An employer with employees or contractors in two or more states that transmits new hire reports magnetically or electronically may make the new hire report to another state if the employer does both of the following:

(1) Notifies the Ohio department of job and family services and the United States secretary of health and human services in writing that the employer has designated another state as the state to which the employer will transmit the report;

(2) Transmits the report to that state in compliance with federal law.

(C) The department may by rule exempt employers from making new hire reports on any classification of contractors if the department determines that exempting the employer will assist the administration of the new hire reporting requirement.
