Is there a safe way to hide my supplier from my employees?
Hi, I have a business a small business rather, I just started this month. Im already done hiring employees, an order processor the one who process orders,sending invoices and etc and also a customer care representative who can guide them if they have difficulties in ordering. I created my business only in Facebook and expected to grow next year.I've planned everything to make it successful and will be making a website intended for this business so probably ill be hiring employes by then. My problem is probably next year the 1st or 2nd sem ill be back to school to continue my studies but i might dont have enough time to calculate the total orders, profit, other cost and lastly dealing with my suppliers. Im planning to hire someone just a contractor who can deal with my suppliers and calculate overfees. Im quite hesitant because he/she will deal to my suppliers im not buying with them in wholesale I always only order in retail but sometimes in wholesale im afraid that he/she might also build the same business and order also to my suppliers. Is there any other way where my employee cant know the my supplier/company name but can talk to them regarding the fees of my orders like an email but she/cant see the email address? or maybe an expert employye intended to promises to hide supplier's informations? if there is such what is the job title for that? Thank u very much!!!!

You can't. Just get someone reliable in that employee position. I'm new at where I work and I've already done billing and know credit card information for over 30 different companies we work with. They trust me in this position and I would not abuse it.
