Essential Services Letter


TAUD has received requests from some utilities which want to provide their employees with a letter to verify to law enforcement and any other interested persons that their employees are engaged in “Essential Services” as defined in Executive Order No. 22 of Governor Bill Lee which becomes effective on March 31, 2020 at 11:59 pm. The attached letter has been prepared for you to use as a template for this purpose. To date, no Executive Order of Governor Bill Lee or any order of the federal government currently requires that utility employees have such a letter in their possession when traveling to or from work or when traveling during work hours as needed to perform their job duties for the utility. TAUD appreciates all the efforts of its utility members and their employees to keep their vital utility services operational for the citizens of Tennessee.
