Cannabis /marijuana — it’s a hot (some might say… smoking hot) topic, not to mention a rapidly growing industry. It’s no surprise that there’s a plethora of complicated laws and regulations affecting businesses that sell marijuana.

Yet marijuana regulations aren’t the main focus of your business. Beyond the cannabis regulations, there’s a host of HR demands to consider: tracking attendance, recording performance, and keeping up with human resource laws and regulations. With the stability and scalability of your business at the forefront of your efforts, you can’t afford the roadblocks and financial drains of HR mishaps. What if there was a set of digital tools, built with purpose and backed by people, to help your cannabis business stay friction-minimal in the HR world?

The HR Features Your Marijuana Business Needs

Navigating HR and Employment Laws for your Cannabis and Marijuana Business

How much of your time does compiling new hire packets or organizing employee files usually take? Is the overtime work of your team members causing you to worry overtime about whether your payroll practices are compliant? Are you confident that your cannabis business is keeping up to date with all the relevant laws and regulations?

These essential tasks can easily tie up your time and that of your employees — especially as your business grows and legislation changes. Yet navigating these challenges doesn’t have to monopolize your time and effort. The HR for Health platform helps simplify and automate essential HR tasks so that you can get back to your customers.

The following are some of our most popular features that can work for your marijuana business.

Employee Handbook

Unclear policies, miscommunication, and inconsistent standards cause many employee complaints and issues. At times, these can turn into lawsuits that tie up company time and finances while simultaneously damaging your brand. A thorough and effective employee handbook can eliminate this confusion — as long as it’s created and deployed correctly. 

HR for Health’s employee handbook helps you create a guide that reduces misunderstandings and clarifies your cannabis business policies. More importantly, our software and support team makes sure your company policies comply with federal, state, and local employment laws.

Compliant Timekeeping and Overtime Tracking 

Timekeeping laws are unquestionably complex. No matter what state your cannabis business calls home, you’re required to retain accurate employee time records to stay compliant. Our software’s digital timekeeping tools provide everything you need to track time automatically and pay the appropriate wages. Additional features like absence alerts (and more) help you stay on top of tardiness and overtime before they become a severe problem.

HR Forms & Documents

In some regions, each new hire completes more than a dozen forms before they start their first shift. Filing the correct paperwork is essential for your marijuana-specializing business. A single missed document can land you in hot water with regulatory agencies — meaning fines, penalties, and legal fees. HR for Health automates the process of completing, signing, and storing critical employee documents. It also helps you ensure your forms are compliant and keeps you updated on legislation changes that affect your team. In addition, files are securely stored and easy to locate in the event of an HR question or compliance audit.
