Work and cancer

If you're a carer

If you're looking after someone with cancer it can have a big impact on your life. Understand your rights and the support that is there for you.

  • Talking about your caring responsibilities at work

    You don’t have to tell your employer about your caring responsibilities, but if you do, it can help them support you.

  • Your rights at work

    It's important to be aware of your legal rights in the workplace. Your human resources department may be able to help you.

  • Making decisions about work

    If you’re a carer you may want to stop working temporarily or completely. It’s important to consider the implications of your decision.
