Why should employers be involved with Child Support?
Complying with this law will benefit all of us:
Income withholding is a successful, efficient tool for collecting support: Employers submit nearly 73% of all funds collected on behalf of Ohio's children!
Stable, reliable workforce: When parents know their children are getting the necessities of life and are well cared for, the workplace results are less absenteeism and higher productivity.
Taxpayer savings: The New Hire Reporting program will reduce government spending by increasing child support collections for families who would otherwise be forced to seek public assistance.
Healthy children: Children who might otherwise not be covered under a medical insurance plan can receive vital and preventative medical attention if they are receiving medical support through an employee's medical plan.
A stronger sense of community: When a non-custodial parent provides a child with regular financial, medical and emotional support, the bonds that form can enrich the entire community.
