All employers are subject to the recordkeeping requirements.
Employers must, for each pay period, record each employee's starting and ending dates and total amount of wages paid, and the highest number of workers on any one day of each calendar week. Each employee's name, social security number, wages and date of payment for the pay period, total wages payable for each calendar quarter, dates of hire and rehire, return to work, or termination must be recorded. Employers have to record the amount of wages earned by each employee in a seven-day period or in a calendar week, the number of hours worked, the number of additional hours available, and rate of pay for additional hours.
Records related to each period must be retained for a minimum of two years. Records showing the employee's name, social security number, etc., must be retained for a minimum of six years.
