I have had a tough year with my diagnosis, surgeries and dealing with my employer. The latter has at times been very difficult. I am starting a new job next year. Can anyone tell me how to bring it up with my employer in a win win manner. I have an occoupational health and safety form to fill out for the job and I know I must disclose something.
I think i have some literature somewhere on this, will try and find it and let you know what they suggest. It came from an employment agency that deals with disabilities so should be ok re sources.
Hi again maggie
I havent located the bits yet and think i may have thrown them out in my pre christmas cleanup. I have another appointment on thursday so will see if i can get something then and pass it on to you.
Hi Maggie and all,
I would be interested to hear other peoples experiences on this. Personally, I inevitably kept these details to myself when it came to employment, as my experiences when I had disclosed in the past, were less than ideal.
I have heard of others though, disclosing the information and doing well. My friend that I think of in particular, found that his boss had been through the same cancer, and they formed a close bond.
I now work for myself. I've found avoidance to be the best strategy yet 🙂
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
