Virginia Statute § 20-79.3

of the Code of Virginia is amended, relating to support order; income withholding order; employer fees. According to the amendment, all Virginia employers may deduct a fee of up to a maximum of $5 for each reply or remittance on account of the employee from the employee's income in addition to the support amount to be withheld. In accordance with a comparable healthcare coverage plan for dependent children, a one-time fee of no more than $5 may be charged by the employer. Child support withholding amounts collected from unemployment insurance benefits are not subject to this fee.

As unemployment rates continue to decrease, the Virginia New Hire Reporting team would like to take an opportunity to remind you of your responsibility to report all newly hired, rehired, and recalled employees. Newly hired, rehired, and recalled employees must be reported within 20 days of their hire, rehire, or recall date, whether they are considered full-time, part-time, or temporary employees.

Rehired employees are employees who return to work after sixty (60) days, or more, of being laid off, furloughed, separated, or granted a leave without pay or terminated from employment. Recalled employees include anyone who remains on the payroll during a break in service or gap in pay and then returns to work. For example, teachers, substitutes, seasonal workers, etc.
