Will My Cancer Diagnosis Affect My Job


Cancer patients and survivors may face certain legal challenges in the workplace or when seeking employment. This may raise questions such as: “Who needs to know about my diagnosis – and how much should I tell?” “Could I lose my job if I take time off for treatment or recovery?” “How much time off can I take?” “What if I need help to do my job when I return?” 

The presentation will outline the applicable laws, explain your rights and options, and provide guidance on requesting what you need. Knowing your rights may help protect you from discriminatory and unlawful actions in the workplace.
