Finra Issues State-Ordered Stay-At-Home Guidelines For Members

Some states are beginning to reopen and FINRA is offering guidelines for members, noting that the orders vary in scope and duration. Generally businesses are required to stay working remotely unless they are considered essential. A majority of the orders, which were issued in late March, have since been extended.

In the meantime, FINRA suggests that if a member firm decides an employee is permitted to report to a physical office location, the employee carry documentation explaining his or her “essential” status, and why it is important to physically work from the office.
