    WC rates go by state and classification/category of work.

    Labor rates for hired help are even more fluctual by state.

    Thanks for the reply but that is real vague.Lets try NJ and the type of work would be lawncare/Landscaping.

    Why not try Arizona? I saved you the trouble of looking it up, just fill in the blanks and get your cost.

    What ever you decide it to be, and can find someone willing to work for that amount

    thanks ,I may need to use that in the future. How about a average hourly amount, I'm guessing $8.00 a hr.

    Sure if you can get good LEGAL help to work for 8 bucks an hour. We start laborers out at 15 an hour.

    Other employer related responsibilities and regulatory bodies to look into, you're state department of employment security, aka unemployment.

    Get a FEIN number from the IRS, if you're state has a state income tax, get set up with the state boys. A good accountant would be you're best bet when you decide to hire employee's, he can set you up with all the gov. agency's,both fed and state.
