How do multi-state employers report new hires?

Multi-state employers have two options: report all new hires to a single state, chosen by the employer, in which the employer has employees, or report new hires to the respective states in which employees are working. If an employer elects to report all new hires to a single state other than Alabama, the data cannot be used by Alabama to detect and/or reduce fraud associated with Mining and Reclamation. The data will only be used by the National New Hire Directory to locate non-custodial parents who are obligated to pay court-ordered child support. Also, employers electing to report all new hires for all states to Alabama must report electronically via the internet at labor.alabama.gov.
