Mar 16, 2016 2:00:30 PM / by Staff Attorney posted in Employment Visas


Extra Obligations for California Employers

If you are currently employing a foreign domestic worker and sponsoring that worker for Lawful Permanent Resident status (LPR) (green card) you must ensure that you are in compliance with state and federal employment tax laws.

Examples of domestic workers, also referred to as household workers are: baby-sitters/nannies, chauffeurs, cooks, housekeepers, caretakers etc.

If you are a domestic employer in the state of California, state payroll taxes are regulated by the State of California Employment Enforcement Department (EDD). A domestic employer may have to register with EDD and submit Form DE1 HW – Employers of Household Workers Registration and Update Form. To determine whether registration and submission of Form DE1 HW is required, the employer must look to the amount of cash wages paid to domestic worker in a calendar quarter.
