The Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act (1996)

This law requires all states to establish and maintain a new hire reporting system designed to enhance enforcement of child support payments. It requires welfare recipients to begin working after 2 years of receiving benefits. States may exempt parents with children younger than 1 from the work requirements. Parents with children younger than 1 may use this exemption only once; they cannot use it again for subsequent children. These parents also are still subject to the 5-year time limit for cash assistance. HR professionals will need to establish and maintain reporting systems to meet these tracking requirements.
