    what about going through a temp agency. they are more expensive than what u might pay someone under the table, but workers under a temp agency are covered under workers comp. after u find a good worker through the temp, u can request him when u want. i am in a similar situation as urself.

    Paying under the table is perfect until something unexpected happens (He gets hurt, files for unemployment and says what do you mean, I worked for...,etc.) Then you are screwed. I would not chance it.
