Default Legalities Of Having An Assistant?

Just wondering about the business side of things from those of you that have an assistant. I know my daycare insurance requires that I add the person to my policy. I know what my state licensing dept requires from someone in order to be an approved assistant. That's all I know. How does it work as a business owner? Paying them? Taxes? etc.

You need to do some research for your local rules but I can tell you what I have to do.

Federal - make sure they can legally work in the US (I9 and everify system), withhold and pay monthly employee payroll taxes, file w-2's and w-3's at the end of the year

State - file quarterly unemployments taxes, withhold and file quarterly employee taxes

Licensing - they have to have everything I do - fingerprint/background check, tb test, physical, and annual training hours. Plus add in annual reviews, etc.

Of course there is also a bunch more paperwork for the federal, state, and licensing as well as if I have 3 or more employees I have to have workers compensation. I also have liability insurance that my employees are covered under.
