#Freebie Friday – Employee New Hire Checklist

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Freebie FridayIt’s FREEBIE FRIDAY!  Wow wasn’t it Friday just a couple of days ago?  Feels that way to me.  Where has the week gone?

This weeks Freebie Friday giveaway here on the QuickBooks for Contractors blog is an Employee New Hire Checklist.

One of the hardest things about being a bookkeeper or payroll clerk, is that we seldom receive any information about new employees – other than the information that comes from their Federal W-4, State W-4, and their I-9 form.

As a bookkeeper in the construction industry, a lot of times the ONLY information that I ever received was a scrawled note with the employees name on it – and I’d spend the rest of my week trying to chase down the rest of the information that I needed, because of course that employee needed a paycheck come Friday!  Does that sound familiar?  I bet it does!

Do yourself a favor and put together New Hire Packets so that you can get the information you need!

What should a “New Hire Packet” contain? Federal W-4, State W-4, and Form I-9 at a minimum. Additionally, you may want to utilize our free “New Hire Checklist” to provide your bookkeeper with additional information about the employee.

Our New Hire Checklist is a 5-page Word document, which you can further customize to meet your needs.

Enjoy, and Happy Friday to everyone!  🙂
