Add employees

When you hire a new employee, head to the People section of your Gusto admin account to start onboarding them. Choose a section below for steps to onboard an employee, how to handle remote and international hires, add a new hire to payroll, and more.

Gusto cannot advise whether a worker should be classified as a W-2 employee or a 1099 contractor. We recommend working with an HR specialist or referring to the IRS government website. More information can also be found on our blog
