Summary:
Unemployment compensation; welfare reform. Conforms Virginia's unemployment compensation laws to the provisions of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996--federal welfare reform legislation. The bill (i) permits deducting from an individual's unemployment compensation benefits any amounts due the federal government as a result of food stamp overissuance to any member of that individual's household, (ii) exempts state and local agencies from filing payroll and tax reports for employees who perform intelligence or counterintelligence functions, and (iii) requires the Virginia Employment Commission to furnish wage and unemployment compensation information to the federal Secretary of Health and Human Services and the Division of Child Support Enforcement of the Department of Social Services for their use in developing the National Directory of New Hires established by 453 (i) of the Social Security Act. The National Directory will be used to locate individuals to establish paternity; to establish, modify or enforce child support orders; and to determine eligibility for assistance or the amount of such assistance.
