Hiring a PA

el007 Member Posts: 5 Listener
Hi everyone,
my name is Elena and I am considering hiring a PA that could support me with some activities I find harder because of my disability. I would like to pay this person on my own. I am not particularly familiar with laws and regulations and I am really struggling to understand what my responsibilities as an employer would be. I am wondering if any of you has been through the same process and has any suggestion to share. Are there associations that help with managing contract, payslips, taxes, etc.? Thank you very much
