Hiring first employee ... questions
We're in BC, but many of our customer service inquiries come from the East coast or Europe so it may make sense to employ someone in Ontario, for example.
In an ideal world, we would have someone working 8am-11am and 1-3pm EST each day (Mon-Fri). Then maybe an hour on Saturday morning and an hour on Sunday morning.
As the business grows those hours would increase.
I've never hired anyone before so I need some advice!
Is it possible to structure an employment contract like that?
Do we need to offer benefits of any kind?
Is there any advantage to hiring inside/outside of BC?
Do we need a lawyer for the employment contract?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
