Hi Everyone, This is not related to trading necessarily unless you consider performing a service for profit, where I am trading my time and expertise in exchange for payment, a trade I am thinking of starting an errand service where I would help seniors run their daily errands by driving then to the doctors or taking them to the grocery store or other things like that. What I need to know currently is what should I expect from 1099 contractors that I may need to hire to help me with my business if I, as a one man operation, can't handle all assignments by myself? What should I minimally require of them if I am a sole proprietor? Am I responsible or are they responsible for any liabilities that may arise such as breaking something that belongs to the client or wrecking a client's vehicle if they are using the client's vehicle to drive him/her around. So, what should I minimally require of the 1099 contractor to my operations. And what should be minimally required of me to get this business started taking into consideration that I don't have alot of starting capital. I just have my own transportation, business cards, flyers, car insurance, cell phone and alot of time to spare. Any productive input would be appreciated here. Thanks.
