BACKGROUND CHECKS: DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE HIRING?

BACKGROUND CHECKS: DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE HIRING?

The Cannabis industry is exploding and under extreme scrutiny across the United States. Now more than ever, Cannabis businesses need to protect what they’ve worked so hard to build. A negligent hiring lawsuit, embezzlement, litigious employees and workplace violence can destroy a company’s stability, safety, morale and most importantly…its profits. You can’t afford to not know what’s happening within your own company.

Do you know the person asking to invest in your company that you have worked so hard to build? You should know detailed background information about each potential investor before you make decisions that could prove damaging to your business. We have all heard the horror stories about people believing their investors were honorable, trustworthy and had integrity. Sadly, some of these investors were fraudulent, liars and were down right criminals. These situations are completely preventable and it is legal to request a Background Check on any person you are looking to hire or to enter into a business agreement.

If you are a staffing agency, the caliber of integrity, character and background of your placements is of paramount importance for your reputation and future relationship with your clients. We work behind the scenes to provide you background screening that is fast, reliable and exactly what you need to clear your candidates for immediate placement.

Drug Policies…in the Cannabis industry?? You heard right! If you do not have a written drug policy in place prior to placement or hire, you can NOT request a drug test if you suspect an employee is under the influence of drugs during the work day. In spite of some progressive drug policies that allow cannabis use in the work place, you may not be hip to cocaine/alcohol or illicit drug use during the work day. You must have clear policies in place, even if you are business who allows for a “smoke break. “

Our goal is to teach you how to protect your business from the dangers of hiring unsuitable applicants or unscrupulous business partners and to simplify what can be a daunting task for most companies. We help businesses understand the policies set forth by the Department of Justice as well as ensure compliance to Federal, State, and Local levels of government guidelines and restrictions. We are familiar with changing legislation in the cannabis industry, and are committed to keeping entrepreneurs within the industry safe and compliant. We are experts and are here to streamline the screening process for you so you can focus on growing your business. Our customized programs are tailored to our clients’ budget and individual needs, allowing them to control costs while maintaining sufficient screening standards.

Our services provide employment screenings, background checks (including civil and criminal), driver’s history, I9/E Verify and many more. We have national and international research capabilities. Our comprehensive reports are tailored to meet your specific needs. They are meticulously researched by a network of professionals that adhere to the highest screening standards.

Let us focus on the backgrounds so that you can grow your Cannabis business.
