HB 2198 - DIGEST

Provides that if a quarterly wage report lists an employee's name, hours worked, and wages paid, but does not list the employee's social security number, and if the employee's hours worked are less than seventy hours, it is presumed that, on or before the seventh day after the occurrence of the first day of employment, the employee did not: (1) Show the employer the employee's account number card issued by the social security administration;

(2) Advise the employer of the employee's account number and name; or

(3) Show the employer a receipt issued to him by an office of the social security administration acknowledging that an application for an account number has been received. In these circumstances, the commissioner shall waive any penalties for not listing the employee's social security number on the quarterly wage report.
