Employment Law -- Employee

Can You Explain The Colorado New Hire Program?

Employers are required by law to send the information collected on employee’s W4s to the State Directory of New Hire (SDNH). The information collected by the Colorado State Directory of New Hires will be used to help the Colorado Department of Human Services, Child Support Enforcement Division locate parents, establish paternity, establish child support orders, and enforce child support orders. This information will also be supplied to the Federal Office of Child Support Enforcement, who will in turn pass that information onto other state child support agencies for the same purposes.
