New Hire Reporting: What you can do to help prevent fraud

A tremendous number of fraudulent claims would be caught if employers would simply report a newly hired employee to the Tennessee Department of Human Services as soon as the new worker is hired. In fact, Tennessee Law §36-5-1101 to §36-5-1108 states employers must report their newly hired or rehired employees within 20 days of the date they are hired.
