Are You Weary About Returning To Work? This is What You Should Know

● Communicate with Your Boss

These are truly unprecedented times, and as such, arrangements that organizational leadership would never have considered before have become quickly accepted. If you have valid issues preventing you from returning to work, discuss it with your boss. Let them know your specific circumstances and contributing factors and see if they would be willing to work out an arrangement with you to return later.

● Understand Your Rights

The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA) went into effect in April 2020 to provide additional paid leave time for employees to deal with the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic and ability to work. It will be in effect until December 31, 2020. If you are weary about returning to work, it is essential to understand your rights so you can make the right decision for your own circumstances. This legislation provides paid leave for employees who are unable to work because of being quarantined and/or sick with COVID-19 symptoms. If you need to care for someone with COVID-19, or are unable to secure childcare because facilities or schools are closed. View more details on FFCRA here.

● Advocate for Safety Precautions if Necessary

Suppose your concern about returning to work is because you are uncomfortable or worried, but you do not have any health or childcare contributing factors. In that case, you will not be able to continue to receive unemployment if your employer orders all the staff back to the workplace. However, if your employer is not abiding by safety precautions, such as providing hand sanitizer, masks and/or gloves, or attempting any type of social distancing, you can advocate for yourself and fellow coworkers by filing a report to your local board of health.
