(CNN) - The Federal Aviation Administration announced Monday it is recalling 800 furloughed employees.
More than 15,000 FAA workers were taken off the job last week because of the partial government shutdown.
The agency issued a statement saying the workers are from the Office of Aviation Safety.
The inspectors and safety staff will "provide oversight in areas across the country," according to the statement.
