Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
You would need to obtain employment authorization forms on each employee and file them, the form is called I-9 form (for any links I provide please copy and paste them to your browser and do not just click on them): https://www.uscis.gov/i-9
You also need to have each employee fill out a W-4
form, which is the form used to send to the IRS and for you to determine taxes that need to be taken from each employee: https://www.irs.gov/uac/about-form-w4
You do not generally need "employment letters" or "employment contracts
" unless you are in the type of business that you need to have written contracts with employees. However, I do have an at will
employment agreement with a non-compete clause I can share with you if you need to have contract employees. Most businesses never have any written contract with employees and there is never much of a need.
Otherwise, those are pretty much the only documents you need to hire employees.
You will need to register with CA Unemployment
division and you will need to obtain workers compensation
insurance, which is mandatory under CA law even if you have only 1 employee.
