Hiring an employee

I'm at a point where I'm considering hiring my first employee.  Does anyone know where I can go to get a list of the steps needed to make it legal, i.e. taxes, workers comp etc?  Also, what about the liability?  I'm in woodworking and construction.  My biggest fear is that they'll injure themselves on the job and I'm stuck with the tab.  How do I cover myself for this type of event?See More

Richard,

Just noticed you joined 48Days.net -- WELCOME! It's a great site with tons of great people.

If you happen to be a speaker or author (or want to become either), check out the following groups. They are two of the most popular groups on the site because of all the great conversation taking place.

* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

One other thing…I want to offer you a gift. You can download my FR EE e-resource entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! by joining the REAL Success E-Zine community at www.liveitforward.com. It's a growing and dynamic community of people striving to live WAY BEYOND their average in the most important roles of their lives. I think you'll get a ton out of both the Goal-Setting product and the REAL Success E-Zine. And again, both are absolutely free.

Looking forward to connecting with you!

Live it forward,
Kent Julian

Richard -- Welcome to 48Days.net. You’ll find this to be a warm, encouraging and innovative group. If you’re looking for additional ideas – just stick around. This group is full of great ideas and strategies to make them come to life.

Lots of others here have made the transition you describe - from employee to "being in business for yourself." Just create a clear plan for what that would look like for you. And then a timeline to make it happen.

Thanks for being part of the 48 Days family. We’re glad you joined us! Dan Miller – 48 Days
