Employee contracts are part of your employee manual, package and Human Resources. The employee manual is one of many Standard Operating Procedures you will need to generate.
If you are in a business that has direct contact with cannabis it is important to write Standard Operating Procedures that are in compliance with State and Federal regulations on cannabis. Cannabis companies cannot launch or stay in business without being compliance.

At any stage of business you may find yourself in negotiations with potential partners, investors and merger opportunities. You need to be prepared and have a strategy. Most investor and partner interaction begins with a pitch deck.
