I was recently approached by a guy who wants to learn the trade and eventually start his own business. He expressed interest in getting his license and working for me as a sub-contractor.
For those of you who have similar experience, what are the most important things (liability issues, etc.) I should consider before contracting and allowing him to train and work through my company?
I’m only considering doing this because 1) I have many other things going on outside my business right now, yet business is booming, so I don’t want to let it slip, and 2) the main territory he will be working in is a bit outside the range of my typical reach, so I think it will be good for me while also setting him up for his own business in an area that will not be directly competitive down the road.
