Marijuana Industry Employment Background Checks
Medical Marijuana Dispensaries Employment Screening
CBD Stores And Dispensaries Employment Background Check
The legal marijuana business is definitely in high growth mode. Sales are projected at more than $24 billion in the next few years. In the states that passed medical or recreational legalization initiatives, employment is projected to increase to nearly 300,000 employees.
Like any other retail business, the legal cannabis industry has the same challenge of attracting reliable, honest employees that are unlikely to bring harm to the business or it’s customers.
Moreover, the legal marijuana business has enhanced concerns about security.
Cash handling, deposits, product growth, storage, transportation security and employee safety are significant risk concerns of employers and legal marijuana sales and dispensary business owners.
Legal marijuana dispensary and store employers need to know who they are hiring.
Like other businesses, some criminal records or hard drug use might disqualify certain applicants.
Employees often work without a coworker or supervisor on site. In the face of sometimes minimal pay and many opportunities to access company property and funds, the need for a quality pre-employment background check is evident.
A thorough criminal records background check is an employers first line of defense in protecting the company’s assets, fellow employees and customers.
