One day one of customer asks if we would hire him part time.
He says he has a regular full time job(cashier at some market similar to ours but bigger) where he pays taxes. Since he currently works Mon-Fri, he says he can work for us just on Sundays(9 am to 8 pm). But he'd rather want to be paid cash(at minimum wage($7.50/hr)). If we hire him, we can have Sunday off to relax.
Should we hire him with this arrangement? Any problem with this arrangement? Would you hire him with this arrangement? The store is in Los angeles by the way if that matters. I am just afraid of IRS or employement agency or some government agency might come after me later on. Or will IRS give us a break since we pay taxes and the potential part-time employee pays taxes on his other full-time job?
