F.A.Q.: Human Resources Questions

How can I find qualified employees?


      Before going through the interviewing and hiring process it is important to first have a clear idea of what you want these employees to do. Be specific and interview and screen applicants with care in order to choose an employee that meets the position's requirements. You may need flexible employees who can shift from task to task as required. Remember, good questions lead to good answers-the more you learn about each applicant's experience and skills, the better prepared you are to make your decision, and the better fit to the position at hand.



What financial responsibilities do I have for employees?


      You must withhold federal and state income taxes, contribute to state and federal unemployment and workers compensation systems, and match Social Security holdings.
