Although each state in the U.S. has slightly different requirements for new hire paperwork, there are several common requirements among the states:
New Hire Registration
For each new employee you hire, you are required to register information about that employee with your state's new hire registration system. A New Hire Registration System is set up in each state. In some states you will have to first register as an employer, then you can register new employee hires online. According to federal law, this new hire registration must be completed within 20 days of hiring. One purpose of this registration is to allow states to collect child support from workers.
