6. Hiring the staff
Hiring the staff could be divided in two categories: contractors and employees. The former interact with you on a contract basis, both short- and long-term, while employees make up the core of your staff (mostly administrators and operators) with no particular period of work. The difference between these categories is in paperwork, taxes, termination procedures and so on, again depending on your country's legislation in this branch.
Here is a list of things to consider while signing a contract or hiring an employee:
- Worker's schedule and duties
- Continuity of work relationship
- Payment terms and times
- Termination procedure
- Insurance (for employees or contractors who work manually)
We will cover this subject more specifically in a dedicated article.
