Hire an Employee in a New State

Princeton University is a New Jersey-based employer. From time to time, due to special research needs or administrative requirements, the University hires an individual to work in a state outside of New Jersey as an employee. Hiring an employee in a new state requires that we are registered in that state, an action that results in additional tax filings in addition to the administrative time and expense of setting up the required withholding of state income tax, state unemployment, and worker’s compensation for the individual.
