Serving The Unique Needs Of The Cannabis Dispensary Industry

Vertical Identity Makes A Complex Process Easy For Dispensary Owners

The current background screening environment for Cannabis Dispensaries is a complex process with local, state and federal (FTC/CFPB) laws to be considered as well as Equal Opportunity Commission (EEOC) guidelines.

Vertical Identity makes it easy with background checks that help cannabis dispensaries mitigate risk and comply with the law.

Whether a dispensary is for medical or recreational use, some states may have laws that require dispensaries to conduct a specific type of background check on their employees. Even without state-specific laws in place, dispensaries would be well-advised to have a comprehensive screening program in order to mitigate the risk of negligent hiring and ensure a safe workplace and environment for the public.

Vertical Identity helps licensed marijuana dispensaries to identify the types of background checks that are suitable for them based on local and state laws as well as their unique business environment.

We also help to determine the right drug screening protocols because even though marijuana may be legal, you still want to test for illegal drugs to weed out potential bad-hires that may harm your business and reputation.

Vertical Identity Helps Your Cannabis Dispensary With:

  • Successfully navigating local and state background screening requirements.
  • Compliant disclosure, consent, and adverse-action process for the applicant.
  • EEOC guidance on the compliant use of Criminal records.
  • Proper drug testing protocols
  • Providing an easy, user-friendly process for applicants to complete their background checks.
