Let’s get back to basics here, folks. New hire reporting, as established by the Oklahoma labor law, is meant so that you the employer send in information to the state on all of your new hires. All of the information that you send in to the state of Oklahoma is used to compare the new hire data with information that state officials have on child support rolls.
They compare the child support lists with their new hire lists and look for matches. Then they track down the parents, establish what to do with them, or decide if there was already some sort of police or court order out there for these folks. The state of Oklahoma also can use the new hire information to track down people who are getting unemployment benefits or some other public assistance when they shouldn’t be. (If somebody is a new hire, of course, they shouldn’t be getting unemployment benefits obviously.)
Once Oklahoma is done with this information, they pass on their new hire reports to the National Directory of New Hires. The feds do the same thing—compare their child support records against the new hire reports from Oklahoma and the 49 other states, as well as Washington DC and the U.S. territories, and they can then spot a parent who isn’t paying their child support no matter what state they are in.
The whole question then comes back to Oklahoma employers: Is this whole new hire reporting process more trouble than good for them? As you can tell from my past blogs, employers should have their human resource information in order in the first place, and if that is true, then providing the names, addresses, and social security numbers of all their new employees shouldn’t be a hassle.
