Ohio’s New Hire Reporting Center: Ohio employers also must report all newly hired employees and independent contractors who live or work in Ohio within 20 days of their start dates. New-hire reporting helps CSEA locate parents who owe support. Employers may report new employees using a variety of methods, including online reporting (www.oh-newhire.com), electronic reporting, mail or fax.
Medical Support Orders and the National Medical Support Notice: All child support orders include information about how a child’s medical coverage will be paid.

It is used throughout the United States to enroll children in health insurance coverage through a parent’s employer.

Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement: The Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement offers online tools that can help employers meet some of the requirements previously mentioned in this booklet.
