As the impact of COVID-19 increases, we want to inform you about the Firm-wide precautions we are taking to protect the health and safety of our clients as well as our employees and their families all while maintaining a high level of client service.
Work-From-Home Policies and Procedures
To ensure client service needs, we will keep some of our offices open to the extent possible. Squar Milner has implemented work-from-home policies and procedures for our San Francisco, San Mateo and Silicon Valley offices starting March 17th, until further notice. Despite these office closures, we are able to serve our clients remotely. We are encouraging employees in other Squar Milner offices to work remotely as well while maintaining the important services we are providing for you.
We are committed to adhering to local regulations and CDC guidance regarding the status of each office location. In the event that one or more of our Squar Milner offices closes, be assured we will provide efficient communication as our employees continue to work remotely.
Preventive Measures and Office Mandates
We are actively working to ensure that each employee has access to safe office spaces, as well as the capabilities to work remotely. In order to achieve this, we have addressed the following areas:
- Squar Milner’s technology provides our team access to different telecommunications applications to facilitate remote meetings rather than in person. This applies to both client meetings as well as internal ones.
- While we discourage travel during these times, we are committed to fulfilling the needs of our clients. We are continuing to hold scheduled on-site meetings unless health risks deem it inappropriate or our clients choose otherwise.
- If an employee experiences flu-like symptoms, we are asking them to work remotely to protect the health of our employees and clients.
- Employees that have recently returned from international travel are required to work remotely and self-quarantine for 14 days.
We recognize that the situation is fluid and changes are occurring at a near-hourly pace. As changes occur and impact our Firm, we will be diligent about keeping you up-to-date.
Be safe and be well.
