EMPLOYERS-REPORT HIRE TO DES                                               

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Creates the New Hire Reporting Act.  Requires employers to report      
   newly hired employees to the Department of  Employment  Security,  and      
   requires   that   Department   to  maintain  a  database  of  reported      
   information and share that information with the Departments of  Public      
   Aid  and  Human  Services,  circuit  clerks,  and  federal offices for      
   purposes  of  enabling  them  to  perform  their   duties   concerning      
   collection of child support.  Provides penalties for failure to comply      
   with reporting requirements.  Requires the Department of Public Aid to      
   establish  a community advisory committee to oversee implementation of      
   the Act and to take other  actions.   Amends  the  income  withholding      
   provisions  of  the  Public  Aid Code, the Marriage and Dissolution of      
   Marriage Act, the Non-Support of Spouse and Children Act, the  Revised      
   Uniform  Reciprocal  Enforcement of Support Act, and the Parentage Act      
   of 1984.  Provides for orders for withholding to be served by  regular      
   or  certified  mail  or  facsimile (now, by certified mail or personal      
   delivery).  Requires a payor's nonperformance  within  specified  time      
   periods  to  be documented by certified mail return receipt.  Provides      
   that an order for withholding need not be served again on a  payor  if      
   income  withholding  is  terminated  because of an interruption in the      
   obligor's employment of less than 180 days.  Effective immediately.         
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
          Adds reference to:                                                   
          820 ILCS 405/1300         from Ch. 48, par. 540                      
          820 ILCS 405/1801.1 new                                              
          820 ILCS 405/1900         from Ch. 48, par. 640                      
        Deletes  provisions  of  the  new  Act  relating   to   reporting      
   procedures,  penalties,  and  the  information  database.   Amends the      
   Unemployment  Insurance  Act.     Provides  for  the   deduction   and      
   withholding  of  an  uncollected  overissuance  of  food  stamps  from      
   unemployment   insurance   benefits   under  specified  circumstances.      
   Provides that the Director of the Department  of  Employment  Security      
   shall  establish  the  "Illinois  Directory  of  New  Hires"  to which      
   employers shall submit, for each new employee  hired,  the  employee's      
   name,  address,  and  social security number, and the employer's name,      
   address,  Federal  Employer  Identification  Number,  and  any   other      
   information  required by the Director of Employment Security.  Failure      
   of employers to comply will subject them to a $15 penalty  per  person      
   not reported.  Any person who conspires with a newly hired employee to      
   cause  the  employer  to fail to report him or her or who conspires to      
   cause false information  to  be  reported  is  guilty  of  a  Class  B      
   misdemeanor  and  subject  to fine up to $500.   Makes various changes      
   concerning disclosure of information by the Department in relation  to      
   paternity, child support, and other matters.                                
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 2.                                                 
        Provides that an employer may, at its option, submit  information      
   regarding  any  rehired  employee in the same manner as information is      
   submitted regarding a newly hired employee.
