You need to find out the trouble code.

The good news is your brakes will function just fine but without the anti-lock braking of course.

Was the light on after you had the work performed? If so head right back over and have them read and reset the code, see if it comes back on. Could be a simple speed sensor or could be a lot more.

The most common ABS problem with Workhorse units is dirty wheel sensors.

Slide under the rig, on front tires behind the axle there is a device with a wire going to it, ti's round (Save for the cap where the wire goes in) cylindrical in shape, about the size of a roll of Life Saver's candy, it's shoved into what appears to be a brass tube... Twist gently and pull it comes out.

Clean it well and shove it back in (Brake parts cleaner should work, and a rag)

Then do the other front wheel

Then do the back's on the rear's the sensor is in FRONT of the axle.

NOTE: That is the most common issue.. NOT the only possible cause.

That was my problem this summer. My friend, who is much handier than I, crawled under the rig and reset the sensors. No problems since.
