What to think about when you’re ready to start taking on team members

When is the right time for hiring?

It’s always difficult when starting up to know when is the right time to start hiring casual/part-time/full-time as you grow and scale.

I speak from experience myself and advising other start-ups legally. I think the approach generally to start off hiring casuals as a good way of protecting your legal position if you need to replace quickly without too many consequences.

Obviously it’s a double edged sword if they want to up and leave without giving you notice.
