What are my rights if my office should be closed under the Stay Home, Stay Safe Executive Order but I am forced to come in?

?An employer is prohibited from terminating an employee for refusing to violate a law in the course of the employee’s employment. Under the Governor’s Stay Home, Stay Safe Executive Order, in-person work that is not necessary to sustain or protect life is prohibited. Unless you have been designated by your employer as a critical infrastructure worker you cannot be compelled to work outside of your home. A willful violation of this executive order is a misdemeanor and should be reported to local law enforcement.?
