Why should you consider employees?
If you’re operating a very small business, you may be doing everything by yourself. In order to grow, your business will need more capacity and an employee can provide that additional capacity. It can also allow you to focus on what you’re great at in the business and delegate the tasks you don’t like or the tasks you’re not as good at.

Keep an eye on worker status
While hiring an independent contractor may be less costly, you should consult with an expert to make sure the work they’re doing is appropriate for a contractor. The costs for misclassifying employees can be very high for the business, so it’s better to pay a little more for an employee than face fines and penalties later.
