What is New Hire Reporting program?

All employers are required to report this information on their newly hired, re-hired, and temporary employees to their state new hire directory. Pennsylvania's New Hire (NH) Reporting Program is the mechanism for doing so.

Pennsylvania matches the NH data against open child support case records to locate non-custodial parents, establish child support orders, or enforce existing orders. Pennsylvania also uses the new hire information to detect possible fraud activity in the Unemployment Compensation and Workers' Compensation benefit programs, and for labor market information purposes. The NH data that CWIA distributes is compiled via the data collected in from this program.
