To hire or not to hire? I have a kid in my History class who has expressed a lot of intrest in working for me on a part time basis for large jobs (mulch, cleanups etc.). I am offering $7.35/hr which he agreed to. My only concern is weather I should hire him since his parent's don't seem to be overly thrilled about him taking the job, and I am a little worried about weather he might hurt himself then sue me. Should I set up a formal contract, if so, what goes into one to prevent being sued? So, to hire or not to hire, what do you think?
