I've been a solopreneur for a number of years now, and when my son was old enough, I got him involved in helping with my business. But he is off to college soon and I will need to hire a replacement that will do his work and hopefully much more as the business continues to grow.
I have a person in mind to hire, but I need to put together an offer, and the new employee will start part-time and grow to full-time. I feel confident in the persons abilities and that they'll be a good fit.
So what things do I need to be concerned with -- administrative-wise, tax-wise, legal-wise -- when hiring my first employee?
