Welcome to the District of Columbia Directory of New Hires!

Spring is upon us and with it, a sense of hope across the country as access to the Covid-19 vaccine increases and employers begin putting their plans in place for the “next normal”, including strategies for reopening their businesses as well as restoring their workforces to pre-pandemic levels.

As unemployment rates continue to decline, the District of Colombia Directory of New Hires would like to take an opportunity to provide employers with an important reminder of their responsibility to report all hired and rehired employees. Newly hired and/or rehired employees must be reported within 20 days of their hire date, whether they are considered full-time, part-time, or temporary employees.

Employers must report re-hires, or employees who return to work after 60 days of being laid off, furloughed, separated, granted a leave without pay or terminated from employment. Employers must also report re-called employees, anyone who remains on the payroll during a break in service or gap in pay and then returns to work. This includes teachers, substitutes, seasonal workers, etc.

For more information, visit our FAQs and Reporting Fundamentals pages.
