To All at H&W LLP:
As all of us now know, Governor Cuomo issued an order earlier today directing that all non-essential businesses have 100% of their employees working from home. This order is effective as of 8 PM on Sunday March 22.
Accordingly, it is suggested that all Attorneys, Claims Analysts and Support Staff retrieve from their offices any files or other materials they will need to continue work from their remote locations. This must be done before 8 PM Sunday, March 22.
We are developing plans for scanning incoming mail, and for completion of other necessary functions. We will keep everyone updated as circumstances require.
In the meantime, we are assured by the Workers’ Compensation Board that virtual hearings will continue and we will look forward to everyone pulling together as we make our way – which we will – through this difficult time.
The Governing Committee
