The Washington State DSHS Division of Child Support (DCS) is responsible for the New Hire Reporting program. New Hire information is used by the state to fight benefits fraud and collect child support.
A bonus “plus” of the program is that no paperwork is required—you can report online. It’s fast and easy—just go to the New Hire Program website and take a few minutes to file the report.
DSHS shares the data with L&I and the Employment Security Department so employers only have to report one time - saving time for employers. View a flyer about the program here.
If you need assistance with New Hire Reporting or want to explore other reporting options, contact Doug Cheney or 360-664-5043.
