New SOC code reporting required

Oct 20, 2022
Written by WR Communications

In 2020, the Legislature enacted Substitute House Bill 2308, which requires employers to include the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) code of each worker in their quarterly tax reports to the Employment Security Department.

SOC code reporting becomes mandatory for employers starting in the fourth quarter 2022. SOC stands for Standard Occupational Classification, a federal coding system that helps government agencies and private businesses compare occupational data.

Additional information on all of ESD’s rulemaking activities can be found on their agency rulemaking homepage.
