Key Points:

  • As of Oct. 1, employers are required to submit a posted worker report by completing this electronic form.
    • The report must be submitted before the official start-day as indicated in the employee’s contract.
  • As of Oct. 1, employee-specific information must be provided within the posted worker report including the employee’s:
    • Full name.
    • Personal identification number in their country of citizenship.
    • Tax identification number in their country of residence.
