Hey guys Ive been in business for about 2 yrs now. I brought my brother in law in as an employee. He is my foreman/manager. He deals with the day to day operations with the crew when im not around as well as does the physical work daily. I handle everything else. Now my intentions are to have him work for us and then eventually if we both agree we would partner up. kind of like dating before getting married. I know alot of you will say dont partner up but i also work a full time job and cannot afford to leave it just yet. So i need someone responsible enough and that knows the business to run it when i cant be there. Now this past season he was taking home a salary of $1000.00 per week. It killed me trying to get payroll for him and the other guys to make sure everyone was paid up on time. This season coming I cant do it. Thats way to much for me to pay out for one guy. In the end i need to collect a check, pay all employees, and i need to have funds in the business account for day to day operation. how and what should I pay him? Ive been thinking it over for weeks and cant come to something that we both would be comfortable with.
