A rural Oregon hemp-extraction business is warning of 90 layoffs simply because of a permit delay.
Evergreen State Holdings sent notice about the possible layoffs to Oregon authorities final week, the Portland Organization Journal reported.
Situated about two hours east of Portland, the business mentioned it received a quit-perform order from the Oregon Developing Codes Division for an unspecified creating code violation.
Evergreen mentioned it plans to resubmit its application to attempt to stay away from laying off workers.
If the resubmitted application is rejected, the business could want two weeks or longer to reopen its manufacturing facility in the town of Grass Valley, business CEO Phil Swindells wrote in a letter to the Oregon Dislocated Worker Unit.
The business on Tuesday did not quickly return a request for comment from Hemp Market Everyday.
