I am a small business owner and am looking to hire my first employee. I was considering going the route of hiring an employee as a vendor (having them file a dba, which I would cover the cost). and they would take care of taxes on their personal income tax. This would strictly be an admin position, in which they would work from home. What would I really need to consider prior to going this route instead of the traditional way of hiring an employee?
