Cuomo Administration: Insurance Considered "Essential Business"

​​​Today, the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC) issued further guidance that insurance is considered an "essential business" and therefore not subject to the workforce reduction requirement. Big I NY sent a letter to ESDC requesting this action yesterday. Our understanding is this exemption is intended to apply to all insurance-related businesses including agencies and brokerages. 

However, please be advised that the best practice is still for you to have as many people as possible work from remote locations. Also, per the ESDC, you still must maintain a clean and safe work environment as required by the New York State Health Department.
