My loyal readers in Indiana, I hope you are reporting your new hires. The labor law governing the issue in the state has been around for nearly 10 years, so hopefully you have the organization tools necessary to keep track of all of your new hires. The employee files. The new hire applications. The payroll deduction forms. I could go on.
The truth of the matter in Indiana is that employers of all stripes and sizes have to be able to report on all of their new hires. This includes employees from employers who fit the broad definition of a company who pays someone to provide them a service or job description, as well as labor organizations that do business in the state.
And by employee, we mean all new employees who either live in or work in the state of Indiana who is expected to soon begin working for you and whom you plan on paying for these services. And even if that employee comes into your office for one day and quits after a couple hours, or you are forced to fire them after that first debacle of a day, you still have to report them as a new hire.
This whole reporting procedure in Indiana, according to the labor law, also includes so-called re-hires, or any employee who once was employed by you and then returns to work for you after having been laid off, fired, or retired, or after they took a leave of absence or quit. So-called re-called employees fit into this category as well. These are employees who stopped working for a time but were still on your payroll during this break. These folks usually are like teachers, substitute teachers, workers who operate on a seasonal basis, factory workers who go on break during slow periods, etc.
