As an employer of a personal care assistant or home health aide, you have certain responsibilities. Among them are the responsibility to:
- Clearly explain the responsibilities of the job.
- Clearly state the terms of employment, including what the job pays and the hours and days the worker is needed.
- Check references of job candidates.
- Consider an optional criminal background check.
- Supervise your employee by giving direction and feedback.
- Pay your employee on time including payroll taxes, Worker’s Compensation, etc.
- Notify Rewarding Work periodically about the number of people you have hired through the Web site.
Note: Job candidates in the Rewarding Work database have NOT been screened in any way and their backgrounds have NOT been checked. That is your responsibility as an employer.
