Governor Whitmer Announces 3 New Executive Orders: Teleconferences, Weight Restrictions, and Youth Employment

New Executive orders by Governor Whitmer are more administrative in orientation. Those include virtual conducting of business, lifting non-seasonal load restrictions and allows youth permits to be mailed, email, faxed or sent via the web. None of them are eye opening but just more focused on daily management of the state.

Executive Order 2020-80 continues to permit the Michigan Employment Relations Commission, Unemployment Insurance Agency, and other administrative hearings to be held by video conference or phone in place of in-person hearings. The order also temporarily allows e-signatures in place of written signatures on related documents. 

Executive Order 2020-81 extends provisions lifting state and local non-seasonal load restrictions, as well as other restrictions on the timing and loading of deliveries, for deliveries that meet immediate needs for medical supplies and equipment related to the testing, diagnosis and treatment of COVID-19, as well as other critical supplies, equipment, and personnel. 

Executive Order 2020-79 suspends the requirements of Youth Employment Standards Act to allow work permits to be mailed, emailed, faxed or sent via the web rather than the previously required in person submission.
