Make it official – register as an employer
Once you’ve got a hiring strategy in place, it’s time to register yourself as an employer. This may take time, so start the process as early as possible.
Here’s what you need to do:
You’ll need an employer identification number (EIN). Apply for an EIN on the IRS website.
You may also need to get a state employer identification number. For more information, visit your state’s labor department website.
Understand employment law
The entire employment process is governed by certain laws, so understand them before you begin hiring. Speak with an employment lawyer for specific advice or check a government site to learn more about employment laws and how to comply with them.
The Department of Labor website provides a list of labor laws. Visit your state’s labor department website for employment laws that apply to your state.
