Free Work and Cancer Toolkit For Employers


8th February 2012

Macmillan Cancer Support has launched The Essential Work and Cancer Toolkit, to help employers support people with cancer, and their carers, in the workplace, and features an employer's guide produced in collaboration with the CIPD.

The toolkit will give employers a better understanding of the physical, emotional and financial impact of a cancer diagnosis, practical guidance on how to manage employees with cancer and information on how people with cancer are protected by the Equality Act.

According to Macmillan each year, more than 100,000 people of working age are diagnosed with cancer in the UK and many of the UK's six million carers are looking after a friend or relative with cancer.
