Letter from the State of Georgia Department of Labor
The State of Georgia Department of Labor is requiring us to report any reduction in pay of any of our employees for the 2nd half of the month of March and the entire month of April. Therefore, you may receive an explanation letter of unemployment benefits from the State.
You do not need to take any action when you receive this letter because you are still employed by Milton Martin Toyota.
Thank you! We hope you have a wonderful Easter tomorrow with your family and are able to celebrate the importance of the day.

Dealership Closing to Customers Effective April 2, 2020
After recent news from North Georgia Health Systems and our local officials about the continued spread of COVID-19, we have carefully considered the risk to our employees and determined it best to close our business for the month of April. Even though our business is deemed “essential”, we believe our most essential asset is our employees and we want to ensure you and your families are safe and healthy.
We understand the importance of being able to provide for your families during this time and will be paying 75% of your average pay for all full and part-time employees for the month of April with a cap for those earning higher incomes. Your manager will meet with you individually to give more details about your compensation. You will be paid on our normal paydays of April 16th and May 1st.
Your managers will also give you more information about your work schedules in the coming days. We will complete service and collision repairs on customer vehicles that are in progress and will continue to complete other business functions as needed or by urgent request of our loyal customers. We will continue to communicate with you throughout the month and let you know if we be able to reopen earlier than expected.
As you take this time at home with your family, please continue to do your part by following the directives of our local healthcare system and state and local officials. We want to be part of the solution to slow the spread in our community and make it possible to reopen for our customers as soon as possible. We plan to send communication to our customers shortly by email and through social media. Please help us spread the word to our community by sharing our social media post.
We appreciate the great team we have and look forward to reopening with an all-new excitement to serve our customers.
