Employee Hired then Quit

We recently hired someone who only worked 1-1/2 days (out of 6) then came in to give his resignation. Do I have to set him up as an actual employee or could I just pay him for his time and send him on his way?

Even if the employee only worked a few hours it’s still best to list him as an employee in your system and follow your normal procedures. Reason being, the employee actually worked and earned wages. Thus, you must report his earnings to the IRS and send him a W-2 just like any other employee. Further, you must complete Form I-9 for each employee, even if the employee only works for one day. Though the employee has up to 3 days to provide supporting documentation of his identity and authorization to work (Section II), Section I must be completed and signed by the employee no later than the first day the employee begins working.
