Idaho Department of Finance Extends Remote Work Guidance

The Idaho Department of Finance has extended its temporary guidance regarding remote work due to COVID-19 until Sept. 1.

The guidance states: “The department recognizes that as states and municipalities are lifting stay-at-home orders in varying stages, our licensees may need to continue remote operations in certain locations. Additionally, the department understands that following these recent events licensees may want to evaluate whether it is beneficial to their businesses and their consumers to continue utilizing remote operations as part of their business processes. Therefore, the department is extending its Temporary Regulatory Guidance until Sept. 1, 2020. Licensees are still expected to meet the original requirements of the guidance and should be prepared to meet any existing licensing or registration requirements after Sept. 1, 2020.”

This extended guidance may be modified or withdrawn by the director as conditions change or as otherwise directed by Gov. Brad Little.

Michigan

Last week, Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer extended the state’s stay-at-home order until Friday, June 12. While the state continues to slowly reopen, the new Safer at Home order will extend temporary business closures and social movement restrictions. The governor also extended the state of emergency until June 19.

Earlier in the week, Gov. Whitmer signed an executive order modifying the state’s stay at home order to reopen retail businesses and auto dealerships by appointment only statewide on Tuesday, May 26. The new order remains in effect until May 28. Under the order, certain retail business in two of eight regions (Upper Peninsula and Northern Lower Peninsula) were allowed to begin opening under health and safety guidelines on May 22.

Workers in an office setting for these regions may go to the office but only to the extent that such work is not capable of being performed remotely. 

The governor also issued a new executive order to outline safeguards to reopen.

The resources include a chart summarizing state actions and business re-openings. Implementation of various state plans are changing all the time and the changes often do not directly impact the accounts receivable management industry (i.e. parks, restaurants, construction, curbside deliveries).
