Title: National Directory of New Hires.
OMB No.: 0970-0166.
Description: Public Law 10-193, the “Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996,” requires the Office of Child Support Enforcement (OCSE) to operate a National Directory of New Hires (NDNH) to improve the ability of state child support enforcement agencies to locate noncustodial parents and collect child support across state lines. The law requires employers to report newly hired employees to states. States are then required to periodically transmit new hire data received from employers to the NDNH, and to transmit wage and unemployment compensation claims data to the NDNH on a quarterly basis. Federal agencies are required to report new hires and quarterly wage data directly to the NDNH. All data is transmitted to the NDNH electronically.
Respondents: Employers, State Child Support Enforcement Agencies, State Employment Security Agencies, Federal Agencies.
