Hourly employee being paid for hours worked with her husband

by Paul
(Gardner, MA)

We have an hourly custodian employee who would like to have her husband help her clean and be paid for the hours that they both do together.

For example if she comes in and works 5 hours and her husband also works 5 hours and we have budgeted 10 hours for that portion of the work she would like to know if this is ok.

He is not an employee of the church she is, so the pay would go to her.

Is there any issues with this scenario? Any red flags that we should be aware of?

If you want to DIY your payroll, I highly recommend you look at using Gusto! It is very user friendly and their support is awesome! Plus they know how to set up and maintain payrolls for churches and nonprofit organizations.

Note: I am a "partner" of Gusto, but as I have told you before ... I never recommend anything that we or our clients have not tried and love =)
