I have felt "job lock" or the feeling that I cannot change my job or career because I am tied to having health insurance from being in that job, even when working in a toxic workplace environment. Now with COVID-19 concerns, I am faced with being exposed to coronavirus and people with coronavirus while I am immunodeficient. Though I have been a survivor for 5 yrs I do not feel safe or well accommodated for my health concerns and see that only Americas with disabilities qualify for further accommodations. I am not disabled and can work and love to work, however I am also at high risk to continue in my current job and see no other option but to resign something I enjoy and a place I have benefits in order to seek temporary remote work from home positions. I feel overwhelmed, stressed out and am asking for advise. What are my rights as an employee under the new FFCRA laws?
