Virginia New Hire Reporting Center; employer reporting of newly hired employees. Expands the obligations of employers to report information about the hiring of employees to the Virginia New Hire Reporting Center. Employers are required to submit information concerning each newly hired employee to the Center within 20 days of the employment of a newly hired employee. The measure defines a newly hired employee as an employee who has not previously been employed by the employer or who was previously employed by the employer but has been separated from such prior employment for at least 60 consecutive days. The enactment of the expanded definition of a newly hired employee is required pursuant to the federal Trade Adjustment Assistance Extension Act of 2011. The measure also clarifies the purposes for which the Division of Child Support Enforcement may use the information. This is a recommendation of the Commission on Unemployment Compensation.
