Employer Reporting Basics

Maximum Days To Report

There is a maximum number of days worked you should report for an employee based on your pay frequency. For example, if your pay frequency is bi-weekly, a full-time employee would have ten days worked each pay period. When there are two bi-weekly payrolls paid in the month, report a maximum of 20 days worked; when there are three bi-weekly payrolls, report a maximum of 30 days. Employees paid weekly, semi-monthly or monthly may have different maximum days worked.

When you report the maximum number of days worked for an employee, that employee receives full-time service credit.
