Mandatory Non-Essential Business In-Person Workforce Reductions

March 21, 2020

Yesterday, as part of the New York State on Pause executive order, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that all “non-essential” businesses and non-profits must keep all of their workers home. This in-person workforce reduction is effective at 8:00pm on March 22, 2020. This announcement comes on the heels of two executive orders issued earlier this week mandating in-person workforce reductions. The first order -- issued on March 18, 2020 -- mandated all non-essential businesses and non-profits reduce their in-person workforce by 50%.  The second order -- issued on March 19, 2020 -- required a 75% in-person workforce reduction.
