The law that sets up this new employee database in the state of Nebraska is called Nebraska Statute 48-2301. OK, I hear you, loyal readers. You’re saying to yourselves: “What next, is he going to start reciting the actual law for crimminey’s sake?”
No, I will not start reciting the actual law, thank you. But what I will do is at least tell you what differences the Nebraska new hire reporting law has compared to other state new hire laws that we’ve looked at so far. And if you’re lucky, loyal reader, I may even tell you how to properly handle this Nebraska labor law.
In Nebraska, unlike in certain other states, you have 20 days according to the labor law to report new employees to the state. No one is exempt from this law. All employers who file tax forms for their employees are included, and even labor unions and hiring halls that have their own employees must report them as well.
On the other hand, if a labor organization or hiring hall only recommends folks to be employees for other companies, then they do not need to report on these individuals, because if they get hired by other companies, they are technically the new employees of those companies. It would be those companies that would be responsible for reporting them to Nebraska.
But on the other hand, if during this referral process, the labor organization or hiring hall pays the some money to the folks that it is referring to these other companies (instead of paying the other companies), then the labor organization or hiring hall would have to report these folks as employees.
Got that? Put another way, anytime you are paying somebody what could be considered wages for the first time, chances are in Nebraska you have to report them to the state as new hires.
