MedMen’s former Chief Financial Officer James Parker filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against the cannabis retailer in January after he was allegedly unable to do his job after being stripped of his powers. Since then, three senior executives including the Chief Operating Officer and the Senior Vice President have left the company along with almost 100 other employees.
MedMen’s current Chief Executive Officer Adam Bierman has stated in a blog post that the allegations are “designed to get attention for what is a meritless lawsuit,” and that the claims go against the company’s values. Parker’s wrongful termination lawsuit is currently pending in the Los Angeles County Superior Court. Adam Bierman was unable to be reached for any comments on the pending lawsuit.
