Based on yesterday’s directive by Governor Hogan,
a special interpretive guidance
was released by the Maryland Office of Legal Counsel. In particular, please read the following statement:
. Employers who are permitted to remain open (to any degree) under the Order may wish to provide a letter to employees who must commute to and from work. This will help employees establish their need to travel if challenged. The suggested content for the letter is:
a. the name and address of the employee;
b. the name and address of the employer;
c. the nature of the employee’s work;
d. a brief statement of why the employer remains open for business; and
e. a signature and contact information for the employer.
We urge all employers who are essential to provide this letter to all of your employees who will be travelling for business.
