Employer Resources Overview

What are Oregon employers required to do?

In Oregon, most parents pay child support through regular withholding from their paychecks, and employers play an important role. All employers are required by law to:

  • Report new hires (employees and independent contractors)
  • Withhold income and forward payments to the Oregon Child Support Program
  • Enroll employees’ dependents in health insurance, if available

Oregon Employer Services Portal

The Oregon Employer Services Portal offers an online one-stop shop for employers to manage their obligations, from reporting new hires to submitting payments and more. Visit the employer portal to learn more and get started. » 

Through the portal, employers can:

  • Update company and employee information
  • Report new or rehired employees and newly engaged individuals who are independent contractors
  • Receive and respond to income withholding orders
  • Receive and respond to National Medical Support Notices
  • Report terminations of individuals subject to income withholding orders
  • Submit child support payments
  • Add users within the company to process payroll and items related to medical coverage
  • Authorize a third-party company to work on their behalf
