There are certain things that you want to get squared away before deciding to hire one. For one, you want to ask about their insurance. Another would be whether or not they have an active business license and if they pay for worker’s compensation. Lastly, you do need to ask about whether or not they conduct background checks on their employees. If you are hiring someone that doesn’t have proof of these things, you are likely going to be looked at as an employer. As a result, you would be liable for any injuries sustained while on your property. It could also cause you to be liable for any other problems that arise on your property.
