States are increasing the number of laws aimed at protecting workers. As a result employers have a growing list of responsibilities. Distributing state new hire forms is one of the first steps to complying with many of these laws. In fact, more than 50 bills have been introduced with state new hire forms' requirements from 2016 to-date (based on Equifax counts). Two of the most recent bills are from South Carolina and Rhode Island.
Equifax was tracking both the South Carolina and Rhode Island legislation so we were able to quickly add the new forms to our State Onboarding Compliance solution helping to keep our clients compliant from the start. Our State Onboarding Compliance solution tracks legislation and helps you get the right form to the right employee at the right time to help keep you on-top-of evolving state required new hire notifications.
