Please Explain The New Hire Program

Under Indiana State Statute IC 22­4.1­4­2 and the Federal Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996, all public, private, non­profit, and government employers are required to report all newly hired employees within 20 days of hire to the Indiana New Hire Reporting Center. Prompt reporting of New Hires helps to locate parents who owe child support and to start collections quickly through income deduction.
