Work is an important part of many people’s lives, and most employed people who are diagnosed with cancer wonder how it will affect their ability to work. Some people manage by adjusting their work hours for a while – they may miss a couple of days here and there or work part-time. Others choose to take a longer break or retire.
Everyone’s situation is different. You may work on a casual, part-time or full-time basis, be self-employed, or work from home. Whether you’ve just been diagnosed or are thinking about returning to work after treatment, if you need help finding a working arrangement that suits your situation, take a look at Cancer, Work & You.
This booklet contains information about how cancer can affect your ability to work, tips about working during treatment, things to consider when returning to work after a break due to treatment, information for working carers, and an overview of your workplace rights and entitlements.
