Alright guys, I'm thinking about starting a small business. Nothing big though. It's kind of like that College Pro Painting thing, but with something more practical. I'm just looking into installing floors like Ceramic Tiles. I'll paint too, but it won't be my main focus. I just have a small question regarding employment. I'm going to hire someone. To escape from paying any annoying things like Income Tax, Employment Insurance, Canadian Pension Plan, etc... on his cheques, I'm just going to pay him as a Independent Contractor. Would that be alright? I'm aware of some of the legal implications that I must take to assure that he is a Independent Contractor in case anything happens.
