​Nebraska contracts with Stellaware to provide new hire reporting services to Nebraska employers.​  

All employers and labor organizations doing business in Nebraska must report the following employees:

  • New employees
  • Re-hired or re-called employees
  • Temporary or seasonal employees
  • Independent contractors (see Nebraska Statute §48-2302)

Employers must report the following within 20 days:

  • Employee's name, address, Social Security number, date of hire
  • Employer's name, address, and Federal Employer Identification number (FEIN)

These elements are on the W-4 form (except for date of hire).

State agencies operating unemployment insurance and worker's compensation programs use new hire information to detect erroneous benefit and public assistance payments. By reporting new hires, employers assist in reducing fraud.
