Hello everyone i am new to the forums and just have some questions. Me and my wife are 22yrsu old and have been thinking about getting a personal chef for quite some time now. I found a friend from high school who is actually in school right now and i figured this would be a wonderful opportunity for thw both of us. My friend will get some experience and referrals right out of school and i will finally get to taste some new tasty foods. Ok now that background info is discussed here are my questions. 1.) If i employ my friend how can i legally pay her? Will it be a 1099 form? 2.)If i wanted to offer insurance (im military so i have tricare) how would that go about. 3.)is there a contract that i can download and revise offline? Ok thats all the information i havw for now..i plan on paying her $600 a month and ill cover the groceries and supplies and stuff. Ill also give her an extra $15 or so every trip to cover gas. I know $600i is REALLLLY cheap but its just me and my wife. If you guys feel like its just morally unfair please let me know. and plz give me lots of advice and feedback so we can all be happy.
