If the person you hire is not a US taxpayer and can claim a tax treaty benefit, then you should collect Form 8233 to certify their exemption from withholding requirements. If they are a US taxpayer or cannot claim exemption under a treaty, then collect form W4.
Status as a foreign national in itself does not exempt the person from tax. If in doubt, collect W4 and withhold taxes like any other employee.
