Employee Verification Letters for Shelter in Place

A number of counties in the rice growing region have issued shelter in place orders or directives, in an effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19. When these requirements are adopted,  Essential Businesses are designated and allowed to continue operations while restrictions are in place. While each order or directive is county specific, farming, food and ag processing and companies supplying these businesses have been designated as Essential Businesses.

The following counties have an order in place: Sacramento , Yolo, Yuba-Sutter.

We are recommending that you consider providing your employees with a letter verifying employment at your company and noting the Essential Business exemption. This will assist them if they are asked to document their need for travel to and from work or as part of their employment. 

Please find links to sample letters for your use by county or a combined letter, if you operate in multiple counties drafted by Kahn, Soares, Conway.
