In 1997, the Utah Legislature passed the New Hire Legislation, under Chapter 7, Section 35A-7-101 of the state law code. This chapter has the title “Centralized New Hire Registry Act,” and covers all of the labor laws requiring employers to report their new hires to the state of Utah, who them pass along the info to the federal new hire officials.
The Utah Department of Workforce Services is the department in charge of the whole process in the state, so all of your new hire reports and questions should go to them. (Or me, of course!)
The way it works in Utah, and in most states that we have looked at so far, is that employers transmit the reports on each and every one of their new hires and re-hires to the Utah Department of Workforce Services. The state then uses that list to compare it with the state child support records. That way, any violator of the child support rules in the state of Utah will come up as a match.
The Utah Department of Workforce Services then passes along its list of new hires to the National Directory of New Hires, who has a database of new hires for every state in the country. The officials at the National Directory of New Hires can then see if there is a delinquent parent in Utah or hasn’t paid child support payments for a child in, say, Pennsylvania.
The process can also catch employees in Utah who are receiving state welfare aid even though they are now working and are not entitled to such aid. Take Medicaid, Food Stamps, Workers’ Comp, Unemployment Benefits, Disability, and other social welfare aid. If an employee is receiving that while they are working for, the state will catch it thanks to the new hire reporting system.
