As we enter another season, let us enter it with a sense of hope. The “new normal,” including strategies for keeping businesses open as well as restoring workforces to pre-pandemic levels, is something we are all striving to achieve.
As unemployment rates continue to decrease, the Virginia New Hire Reporting team would like to take an opportunity to remind you of your responsibility to report all newly hired, rehired, and recalled employees. Newly hired, rehired, and recalled employees must be reported within 20 days of their hire, rehire, or recall date, whether they are considered full-time, part-time, or temporary employees.
Rehired employees are employees who return to work after sixty (60) days, or more, of being laid off, furloughed, separated, or granted a leave without pay or terminated from employment. Recalled employees include anyone who remains on the payroll during a break in service or gap in pay and then returns to work. For example, teachers, substitutes, seasonal workers, etc.
We understand that these are still unprecedented times and would like you to know that we are here to support you. If there is anything we can do to better serve your needs, please let us know. We welcome your questions and look forward to helping you any way we can.
We may be reached via email using the link provided below or directly by phone at (800) 979-9014.
Wishing you peace and solidarity as we continue to navigate this pandemic, together.
