I didn’t hear anything at all from the human resources department for several hours and the young man never came back to work
I hired a new person to work at the cannabis dispensary a couple of weeks ago. Each one of the people that work at the cannabis dispensary have to pass a background check. We don’t look for misdemeanor crimes that you might have committed when you were a kid. We are looking for serious crimes that might affect your ability to work inside of a cannabis dispensary. The new person had a small ding on his background, but the HR department decided to let him start working. I received an email from the HR department this morning and it was an urgent flag on the corner. I opened the email from the HR department and it explicitly told me to call the employee immediately and send them to the HR department on the other side of town. The employee happened to be working that day and on the schedule for a 6-hour shift. I told the employee there must be some type of problem, because the HR department wanted to see him immediately. The kid looked like he knew something must be wrong. He took everything from his locker when he left the building. I didn’t hear anything at all from the human resources department for several hours and the young man never came back to work. Later that afternoon I had another email from the human resources department. The letter briefly explained that the employee was no longer eligible to work for the Cannabis dispensary due to a ding that was found on his federal criminal history. I have no idea what that could be.
