Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the announcement from California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones of the launch of a new workers’ compensation insurance program for the state’s cannabis industry.
The program was created by Atlas General Insurance Services, and is designed to accommodate workers’ compensation risks involved in all aspects of the cannabis industry, including growers, extractors, analytical labs, medicine manufacturers, food & beverage products manufacturing, packaging, warehousing & distribution, transportation and dispensaries. Atlas provides all of the distribution and underwriting as well as the carrier backroom functions on behalf of Accredited Surety & Casualty. The program will be rolled out to over 1,700 Atlas appointed agents in California and another 4,000 agents in the other states with legal cannabis operations.
