Employees vs. Independent Contractors

Can I get some thoughts here?

I'm opening a box, crossing my fingers next month, but it may be a little later. I will be a co-owner of the box. I imagine myself and my partner will be employees of the box. To start that is all there will be, but down the road when the need for additional trainers comes along what do you guys recommend. Do I employ them, or do I bring them in as independent contractors.

Pluses and Minuses to both sides?

Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks.

Talk to your accountant. Whether you can legally treat them as contractors will depend on a number of factors, such as how closely you manage their work. You can't really just decide to make them one or the other.
