The South Carolina Department of Social Services’ Employer New Hire Reporting Program needs your help? Why? Because, as with every other state in the Union and the federal government too, they are trying to track down parents who don’t pay child support using your new hire employee information.
The Employer New Hire Reporting Program in South Carolina was set up to through the special Child Support Enforcement Division of the Department of Social Services. It was mandated to collect the new hire information from all South Carolina employers by the Section 43-5-598 of the South Carolina Code of Laws.
Think of it this way: the more delinquent parents that the Employer New Hire Reporting Program catches in South Carolina, the less the tax burden is on the states residents and businesses. It is their taxes, and your taxes, that pay for public assistance that children may be getting instead of the child support from their parents.
So a little effort on the part of you and other South Carolina employers, in other words, could be considered to be a long-term investment for you. You report the names, social security numbers, and addresses of your new hires (as well as, optionally, their date of birth, date of hire, and phone numbers), and you could be tracking down delinquent parents and saving millions for the state.
You have this information already on all of your new hires. I’ve been trying to drive this point home to employers of other states when it comes to new hire reporting. Open an employee file in your human resource department, and you should fine the employment application, their referral forms, interview evaluations, employment offers, and other documents that would have this information on it, easily transferable to the state via mail, fax, email, Internet, or magnetic tape.
