New Hire Reporting Program
In 1997 Montana legislation was passed in response to the Federal PRWORA legislation of 1996. The Directory of New Hires statute requires Montana employers to report all employees hired or rehired on or after October 1, 1997 to the New Hire Reporting (NHR) Program. MCA §40-5-922
NHR is a process by which employers report information on newly hired and rehired employees to the NHR Program within twenty (20) days after the date of hire.
As an employer, you play a key role in this important program by reporting all of your newly hired and rehired employees.
