Hiring contract driver/dental lab helper - any precautions to take?
So we are at the stage of our business where we need help.
We posted an ad for Driver/Dental lab helper.
Many people applied, some interviews scheduled.
My question is this: this is CONTRACT position that will turn into full time contract or permanent in early 2019. We offered an hourly wage + gas card ( will issue costco corporate card for filling up at costco).
If he is self employed and HST registered - great, if not - who cares. We will only issue a cheque with NO deductions on it - they would have to pay their own taxes from it.
This driver will be using his own car and insurance. I dont think that he/she will call her car insurance to let them know of vehicle being used for local deliveries. HOW CAN I PROTECT MYSELF AS AN EMPLOYER and not be liable for any car damage if the accident occurs while this person is on delivery?
Any other suggestions are appreciated guys
