Do you need to hire an employee? Here are the absolute basics.
First, you must be set up for payroll. Your company must have an EIN, a Wage Withholding Account and a Unemployment Account at the very least. This will vary from state to state.
When you have these pieces set up and are ready to hire, you must collect: W-4, I-9, Acceptable Identification. Depending on your state/local requirements, you may also need to collect emergency contacts and report the new hire to your state.
