ICBA issues essential workforce template letter

Mar 25, 2020

ICBA posted a template letter for community bank employees affirming that they are essential workers according to guidance from the Departments of Homeland Security and Treasury.

With community bankers in certain states reporting being stopped by law enforcement as they attempt to go to work, ICBA encourages community bankers to fill out and distribute the template letter to staff to keep with them along with the federal guidance.

The template and guidance are available on ICBA's Crisis Response and Preparedness Center under "Essential Business Management Resources." Community bankers who have questions or need assistance can contact ICBA at crisisresponse@icba.org.
