Confronting Medical History at Work
Telling Employers and Others - For a cancer survivor, you constantly encounter moments in which you have to decide whether or not to tell people about your cancer experience. Although, you may be in remission for years, your life has been redirected since your cancer experience. Telling anyone whether it be an employer or friend can create certain consequences given the person's reaction. The decision to disclose your cancer experience is solely up to you.
Know Your Rights - When you are applying for a job, there may be certain issues, which trigger an employer's attention. You may have gaps within your education or work experiences and/or you may not have much work experience because of your personal cancer treatment. You have certain rights when applying for a job and it is incredibly helpful to know those rights.
