What To Do When You Hire Your First Employee

hire-first-employee-texas-business-lawyerThere comes a time for many business owners when they cannot handle the workload and they need to hire someone to help. Hiring employees can be exciting as it is often a sign of growth, however, employing even one person will trigger a wide range of legal issues that must be addressed. The following are only some examples of legal issues that accompany hiring.

Registering for an employment identification number (EIN)
With even one employee, you will need to withhold and report certain taxes and payments to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). To do so, you will need to have an EIN, which you can apply for on the IRS website.[1]

Establish a system for employee records
In order to best protect your business legally, there are many different records that you will want to keep for each employee. These can include personnel issues, including records of absences or tardiness, production numbers, and more in case you have to justify that a termination was not unlawful. The IRS also requires you to keep records of employment taxes for the past four years. It is critically important that you have a completed I-9 and W-4 for each employee and that these forms be filled out correctly. Failure to do so can result in serious penalties.

Ensure compliance with FLSA and the EEOC laws
Both the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)[2] and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)[3] require that employers comply with a variety of laws and regulations regarding hours worked, wages paid, discrimination, harassment, retaliation, and more. Violations of these laws can lead to heated legal disputes with employees, so you always want to be sure you meet the standards set out in these laws.
