The Connecticut Department of Labor, Office of Research collects New Hire information from employers to assist the Department of Social Services in locating child support obligors and in serving child support withholding orders. The Office maintains a State New Hire Directory and also submits this data to the National Directory maintained by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Mandated federally by the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act and in Connecticut by General Statute 31-254(b), these directories allow Social Services agencies nationwide to match individuals who are delinquent in child support payments to their new employers so that wage garnishments can be made. Helping Children
The addition of two Internet reporting options (online data entry and FTP) gives employers an easy, efficient means of reporting new hires, while eliminating mail and fax costs. Our automated processing not only shortens the time it takes to add your data to the State and National New Hire Directories, it also greatly reduces the cost of doing so.

The online data entry option features online editing, auto-filling of previously supplied employer information and a confirmation page with an email receipt. The FTP option gives larger employers the ability to submit a file and provides an email confirmation receipt and email report of any records that were rejected due to errors. With both options, employers are assured that their efforts to comply with the law are fulfilled and the data submitted is timely and accurate.

Most importantly, Internet reporting helps to get more child support for our families and shortens the time it takes to get it to them.
