Information About the Virginia New Hire Reporting Center

The Virginia New Hire Reporting Center,, is a central point for Virginia employers to report any new hires or rehires. Employers are required by law to fulfill this obligation within 20 days.

What are the advantages to me and my company to report a new hire or rehire?

  • Filing the new hire report can save your company money by reducing the potential tax liability for unemployment insurance claims filed against your company.
  • By reporting when you hire an individual we can reduce unemployment insurance fraud.

Virginia Statute 63.2-1946 and the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (PRWORA) of 1996, 42 U.S.C. 653a, requires all Virginia employers to report all newly hired or rehired employees to the state directory.

The Virginia New Hire Reporting Center offers multiple ways to file these reports including electronic and non-electronic means.
