Cancer and its treatment can affect many aspects of a person's life. This booklet has been prepared to help you manage your working life after a cancer diagnosis.
The way that cancer affects your work and finances will depend on your individual situation. You may work on a part-time, full-time or casual basis, be self-employed, be looking for work, or work from home.
We hope this booklet helps you find a working arrangement that suits you. It 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, information for working carers, and an overview of your rights and entitlements.
This booklet does not need to be read from cover to cover - just read the parts that are useful to you. You may also like to pass this booklet to your family, friends and co-workers for their information.
