What’s New with New Hire Reporting? Date of Hire

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Reporting new hires has been a requirement for a long time, however, the “first day of work” law went into effect on June 8, 2011.

New Hire Reporting is one of the best tools for locating noncustodial parents who may be evading their child support responsibilities.  Employers play a key role in ensuring children receive the financial support they need.  The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Act (PRWORA) of 1996 requires employers to report all new hires tot heir State Directory of New Hires.  Moreover, the Claims Resolution Act of 2010 was recently passed to reform the Unemployment Insurance program, including changes to Section 453A (b) and (c) of the Social Security Act.  This legislation added a new requirement for employers to report, in addition to other information, the date that an employee first performs services for pay.  The “first day of work” law went into effect June 8, 2011.  For more information on new hire reporting visit the Federal Office of Child Enforcement website at
