Under equality law, people with cancer are protected from unfair treatment at work.
Employers are also required to make reasonable adjustments to help staff with cancer stay in or return to work when they’re ready and able to.
When Juan (pictured above) was undergoing treatment for testicular cancer, he and his employer agreed the support he would need before returning to work after treatment. Juan says ‘I needed a lot of recovery. My employer was supportive throughout’.
