I am a busy freelance designer, and have often considered taking on a design assistant. But, although there's mounds of information on the interwebs about the legal aspects of this, I kind of glaze over when trying to get through it. What are the practical considerations I should make regarding this? Taxes? "Worker's Comp?" Part time vs. full time ramifications... I know zero about these kinds of things. I don't want to add a lot of red tape to my existence... but I'd like to do it right.
Comments as directed to a middle schooler would be appropriate.
