If someone has or has had cancer, they are protected by law from unfair treatment at work.
Helping patients with their work support needs
This means it’s unlawful for an employer to discriminate against them because of their cancer.
By talking to patients about the impact their cancer and treatment may have on their working life, you can help them have early and informed conversations with their employer about their work support needs.
We’ve got resources to help you with this. Our new leaflet provides information about Macmillan’s new Work Support Service and how you can signpost your patients for information and guidance on their work-related issues.
