"A lot of employees will be scared about their safety in coming back and whether they'll be able to say no if they're asked to come back and they're not comfortable," Johnny said. He further discussed the protections and resources available to employees through OSHA and under the CARES Act and FFCRA, including how to navigate returning to work and caring for children.
