I'll bet this has been discussed quite a bit; please forgive me. I've been a sole proprietor for over six years by myself. It looks like this year I'll have to hire my first employee. Where do I start with all the legalities? 1: Worker's comp: do I need it for just one employee? 2: Medical insurance: what's the laws on that these days? 3: How do I verify he's a legal citizen? 4: How do I handle the pay? (taxes, soc.security, etc.) 5: Should I incorporate? 6: Anything else I might not have thought of? Thanks for any help, gentlemen.
