c. The Commissioner of the Department of Labor, in consultation with Director of the Division of Revenue in the Department of the Treasury, shall prescribe such regulations as the commissioner deems necessary to carry out the purpose of allowing employers to convert from a quarterly system of payments and filing to annual filing, and to simplify employer filing by allowing the combination of unemployment compensation, disability benefits and gross income tax remittance for reporting and payment purposes for employees providing domestic services.

d. Notwithstanding the provisions of subsection a. of this section, an employer subject to the provisions of this section shall, within 10 days of the separation from employment of an employee in domestic service whose contributions are treated as taxes pursuant to the provisions of this section, report to the Commissioner of the Department of Labor, on a form determined by the commissioner, wage information for all completed calendar quarters of employment not previously reported and such other separation information as may be required to properly process an unemployment compensation claim.

e. For the purposes of this section, "domestic service" means domestic service as an employee in a private home of the employer, such as service as a babysitter, nanny, health aide, private nurse, maid, caretaker, yard worker or similar domestic employee.
