What Is "New Hire Reporting"?

Welfare reform legislation requires all employers to report certain information on "new hires" to a designated state agency. In New Hampshire that agency is NH Employment Security (NHES). When "new hire" data is matched against the names of child support debtors on the state and national levels, the Office of Child Support Enforcement is able to locate and collect child support from non­custodial parents living here and in other states.
