CAN (BC): Peachland-based operation to reinstate nine laid off employees

Benchmark Botanics' wholly owned subsidiary, Potanicals Green Growers, laid off nine employees at its Peachland operation on October 5, 2020 and as a result, received a complaint from the United Food and Commercial Workers International Union, Local 1518 alleging that these lay-offs violated the Labour Relations Code.

Potanicals attended a hearing at the British Columbia Labour Relations Board (the "Board") on October 9, 13, and 14, 2020 to provide its reasons for laying off the nine employees at the Peachland operation to the Board. On October 16, 2020, the Board issued its decision concluding that Potanicals' layoff of the nine employees at the Peachland operation violated the Code. The Board ordered that the nine employees be reinstated at the Peachland operation with back pay and any other benefits to make them whole.
