    What will you do if you do catch the janitor telling someone else about what you are doing? My answer; you can't do anything because they are janitors and have nothing to really lose. Forget about it.

    Just put them on salary and leave it at that. Treat them the same as everybody else in your company. Not having the pressure of making a commission may allow them to do a better job for you. JMHO YMMV
