Guidance for Determining Whether a Business Enterprise is Subject to a Workforce Reduction Under Executive Order 202.6 – We recognize that there may be questions among lawyers as to who is covered by the order. This much is clear: “Any business that only has a single occupant/employee (i.e. gas station) has been deemed exempt and need not submit a request to be designated as an essential business.” Accordingly, a solo practice lawyer in an office without any staff or employees is exempt.
