How do I know when einstellen means to stop and when it means to hire?

"jemanden einstellen", "to hire someone" is about a person like in "Ich habe eine neuen Arbeiter eingestellt".

On the other hand, "etwas einstellen" or "etwas beenden" translates as "to stop something" ie. it is about a behavior like "Stellt diesen Krach ein" (Stop that noise),

Hope that helps :-)
