Developing and Using Public-Private Data Standards for Employment and Earnings Records

View ResourceView Resource

This paper is a summary of a work completed by a working group. The T3 Network and the HR Open Standards Consortium (HR Open) formed a working group (HR Open Work Group) to develop data standards for employment and earnings records for use by employers, government, and other stakeholders. These HR Open standards establish common definitions, clarify data relationships, and provide guidance for employers and their human resources (HR) technology service providers on maintaining and reporting the records, and for government agencies in establishing reporting requirements and data collection systems.
