(This is an abridged version of a story that appears in the September issue of Marijuana Business Magazine.)
Anecdotal evidence points to a decline in employee theft in the marijuana space, but it’s safe to assume it hasn’t been eradicated.
And that means cannabis retailers would be wise to play it safe.
Especially because employee theft in the marijuana retail sector has become “covert,” said Gary Cohen, CEO of Denver-based Cova Software.
He also called it “wishful thinking” to believe that employee theft is no longer a major problem in the industry.
Cohen and other cannabis industry experts spoke with Marijuana Business Magazine about employee theft, including such issues as:
- Your POS system can be your first line of defense.
- Should you be concerned about employee theft?
- How to tell if your workers are stealing.
- Nipping employee theft in the bud.
