A California hemp company was closed by state labor officials after workers complained they have not been paid for two months. Castillo Seed Company, Half Moon Bay, California, was fined $33,000 by the Labor Commissioner’s Bureau of Field Enforcement, and forced to close due to a lack of worker’s compensation insurance. The company remains under investigation and could face further fines and possible criminal charges if it is found to be in violation of other labor laws.
