Report New Employees And Independent Contractors To The Edd (De 542B)

Why do
I have
to report?
The federal New
Employee Registry
(NER) program, part
of the welfare reform
legislation, requires
employers to report newly-
hired or rehired employees to
the Employment Development
Department (EDD). The California
Legislature expanded the reporting to
require businesses and government
entities to report the independent
contractors they hire.
Whats the benefit?
The information you provide to the EDD is
cross-matched against a list of parents who are
delinquent in their child support obligations.
Child support agencies are then able to locate these
parents to establish a payment order or enforce an existing order.
The EDD is an equal opportunity employer/
program. Auxiliary aids and services are available
upon request to individuals with disabilities.
Requests for services, aids, and/or alternate
formats need to be made by calling
888-745-3886 (voice) or TTY 800-547-9565.
