Employer's Corner

The Local Child Support Agency (“LCSA”) is mandated by State and Federal guidelines to obtain an order for income withholding and medical support. As an employer, you must report all newly hired employees to the Employment Development Department within 20 days of their start date.

No employer may use an Order/Notice to Withhold as grounds for refusing to hire a person or for taking disciplinary action against an employee. A civil penalty of up to $500 could be imposed.
