Hello,

We have found a 17 year old who is interested in Carwash attendant position. Can some one tell me what are the legal formalities that I have to go though before hiring anyone for this part time position.

Thanks,
TJ.

What state are you in? Every state has different rules, you should check with your state to find out what the requirements are. In our state he’s going to need a Social Security number and a minor work permit.

You can always pay contract labor and let him worry about taxes. You don't have to deal with anything except for filing his pay with a 1099. It makes it a non-issue as far as firing since he's not an employee. Beyond that, it's just a matter of whether he's of legal age to work in your state.

How do you 1099 this? Even though he is full time?

Contract labor, doesn't matter if it's full or part time, and OP said it's a part time position.

Tread carefully / Labeling someone a 1099 employee doesn't make it so. Numerous factors come into play and if you mislable and the government re labels you are in for some penalties.

This is really bad advice, do not even consider this. Beyond the tax implications and laws surrounding 1099 contractors, the liability issues are huge.
