Household Employer Requirements

Household Employer Requirements

If you pay wages to people who work in or around your home, you may be considered a household employer. Refer to the table below for a list of workers and whether they are or are not considered household employees. A household employee may perform services on a temporary or less than full-time basis.


If you pay $750 in total cash wages or more in a calendar quarter, you must register with the Employment Development Department (EDD) within 15 days. Register online at e-Services for Business. For more information, visit the Household Employer page.
