Default Hired my first employee

Well, I took the big plunge and after 3.5 years being self-employed working for myself I just hired my first employee. I have been comtemplating the idea for some time now and finally decided to do it.

I already got worker's compensation set up, that was easy since I already had an account for optional insurance for myself. I also set up a payroll account; did it online. I've contacted my insurance company about my Commercial General Liability policy to see if I have to make any changes. I've been reading up on labour law to make sure I don't infringe on my employee's rights at any time.

Can anyone think of anything I've missed that I should consider? Of course there is lots more to do such as office supplies, equipment, tools, etc. but I mean from a legal point of view.

Thanks,

Rob

Hi Rob,

Congratulations, this is a big step. I can't think of anything more that you can do from legal point of view.
I hope your business is expanding and you will be able to hire even more employees.

Thanks, I think I'm just as excited as when I first went into business for myself. I'm really looking forward to it. As for more employees, we'll see; a year ago I said I would never hire anyone. Never say never. The time seems to be right.

Its a great feeling isnt it. I had a lot of hesitation before doing that mostly because i really didnt feel very "bossy". But most people are nice and will be very helpful. Otherwise you can just fire them.
