    Looking for some helpful insight into hiring hispanic labor. What do I need from them....a SS# or green card + employement forms that everyone else gets? I've yet to use hispanic labor.

    Thanks.

    I would imagine everything a normal employee would need. S.S.,drivers lic. or some other form of picture ID, fill out the app., and yes all taxes.

    if you do payroll guy the info they need to put them on it is pretty much all you need and i think they made me get their name address ss# d.o.b and if theyre gonna drive my ins agent needs that stuff plus d.l # and they do a drivers record i think thats it there may be one more thing

    I want proper documents and do not want to hire illegals......though they are on every corner.

    I didn't know if dealing with green cards added anything else to the mix. I figured just the usual forms but additions, if any, I was not clear on.

    To hire ANYBODY legally you just need proof of identity and also proof of their eligibility to work in the US. A green card covers both, as does a US passport. Or there are a bunch of combos that are valid, such as a valid driver's license AND a SS card. Just google the form I-9 and you should be able to find and download what you're looking for.
