Default Hiring an Assistant

Ok, So I've decided to hire someone to come in and work from 12:30 to 2:30 Monday through Friday. I'm going to pay them $8 an hour so it adds up to $80 a week. This will allow me to get out of the house for a lunch break & get my allergy shots, go to doctors appts., etc. But, I don't know anything about this. I'm going to run a background check on them, have them get a health assessment and tb test before they are left alone with the children. I'm wondering if I can just pay cash under the table since it's only 10 hours a week or do I have to go through all the tax legal stuff. If I have to do the tax stuff what fees are there? How does this work? Please give me any info you have on this.
