Attorney General Letitia James speaks to delegates at the PEF Convention on Oct, 25, 2021, in Niagara Falls.

PEF President Wayne Spence issued the following statement on Jan. 28, 2022:

“PEF applauds New York Attorney General Letitia James’ common-sense approach to telecommuting.  In a memo to her staff this week, James noted that offices statewide will be “at or below 50% capacity” unless operational needs dictate otherwise.  She also committed to continuing in-office contact tracing whenever employees exhibit COVID-19 symptoms, are exposed to a positive individual or they or someone else in their household tests positive.  Social distancing and masking are required at all times for those who must work in the office, and KN95s are available for all employees.  Until the Omicron variant recedes and the risk of contagion lessens, PEF will advocate that other New York State agencies follow the Attorney General’s lead.”
